Funding Opportunities

Gifts Now

For donors who wish to make gifts by cheque, credit card, or cash or by giving securities, stocks, shares, or property, gifts may be a one-time contribution or spread over months or even years (pledged). Gifts may be directed to a current funding priority or to another need of the Foundation that is a meaningful one for the donor.

Your investment can be designated to one of the following strategic directions:

  • Educational Resources
  • Research and Development
  • Digital Technology
  • Experiential Learning

Please see the attached Donation Form (PDF) for further contact information.

Types of Gifts

Donors often choose to create lasting legacies by establishing or contributing to an endowed fund. Endowments are permanent assets that generate income to support a particular program or area specified by the donor. Endowed funds can be unrestricted, providing a source of venture capital, or can be designated for a wide range of purposes.

Event Sponsorship
The Heritage Community Foundation undertakes a number of events on an annual basis, including the Donor Recognition Events and Web Launches. Sponsoring an event is an excellent opportunity for you or your company to showcase their philanthropic community involvement. For more information about how to become a sponsorship partner, please contact the Development Office at (780) 424-6512, ext. 258.

Gifts of equipment, products, and materials are of great value and help to reduce costs of providing training tools for our staff.

In Memoriam and in Honor Giving
Make your gift special by donating in honor to or in memory of a friend or loved one. Contributions made in memory or in honor of individuals may be directed as you wish.

Planning for Future Gifts
In addition to making outright gifts of assets, you may make a deferred gift of assets such as securities, stocks, bonds, and property. Other types of these planned gifts range from life-income gifts to bequest by will to creative arrangements using retirement-plan benefits. Giving this way may allow you to give more than you ever thought possible and, at the same time, benefit from tax advantages or income for a term of years or life.
