For Donors

Giving Options


Your gift will continue to give. Thanks to the power of endowment and time, your gift will grow in value and continue to provide grants long into the future.


Your gift is secure. The Arizona Community Foundation prudently manages our investments for optimal total return. We receive an annual independent audit of our financial position and distributions assuring that your gift will continue to grow and be used as you envision - to support Bisbee. 



You have many options to choose from when giving to The Bisbee Foundation. You may make an immediate impact where it matters to you with a gift today or leave a lasting legacy of caring with a planned gift.


Cash: A check or credit card gift is the simplest type of charitable gift.


Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds: Many gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual funds result in a charitable deduction for the full market value of the donated asset, even if you bought it for far less.


Life Insurance: You may transfer ownership to The Bisbee Foundation and receive a tax deduction for the policy’s cash value.  Gifts to The Bisbee Foundation to cover premiums due may also qualify for a deduction. Naming The Bisbee Foundation as a beneficiary of your insurance policy enables you to create a charitable legacy without invading cash and other assets designated for your heirs.


Closely Held Stock: Donating the closely held stock of your business to The Bisbee Foundation offers you a charitable deduction for the appraised fair market value and potential saving of capital gains tax.


Charitable Bequest: Name The Bisbee Foundation to receive all or a portion of your estate through your will or trust, reducing estate taxes while creating a charitable legacy.


Charitable Gift Annuity: You make a charitable gift and you or someone you designate can receive lifetime income. The remainder goes to The Bisbee Foundation upon your passing, potentially reducing and deferring capital gains tax and reducing probate costs and estate taxes.


Charitable Trusts: A charitable lead trust or several types of charitable trusts create valuable options in estate planning by providing tax savings, a significant gift and income for either a charity or family members.  


Life Estate: Give your personal residence, ranch or farm as a gift, occupy the residence or land without disruption, and receive an income tax charitable deduction for the present value of the remainder interest.  


Retirement Account Assets: Double taxation on retirement plan withdrawals decreases their value for your heirs. Consider providing other assets to heirs and naming The Bisbee Foundation as beneficiary of your retirement accounts. You can save taxes and preserve your hard earned assets for the good of the community.
