Ways to Give
Your philanthropic goals are our first priority at the Spano Foundation. We can put your vision into action today or make a plan for the future.
We accept a broad array of assets such as cash and non-cash gifts of appreciated securities, real estate, life insurance, and others. If giving is in your future, we also accept deferred gifts such as retirement plans, 401(k) plans, life insurance and proceeds from the sale of property.
Fulfilling Ways to Give
The Spano Foundation offers several giving options, depending on what you hope to achieve through your philanthropy. Many donors take advantage of multiple strategies for tax planning purposes or to leverage their resources for greater good.

- Establish a fund now
Creating a named charitable fund at the Spano Foundation is one of the easiest and most effective ways to manage your personal philanthropy. We offer several types of funds to help you create lasting impact in our communities.
- Plan for a future fund
There are many ways to plan for a future fund, such as a charitable trust, or future IRA distribution or bequest. Donors who provide for the future through their estate plans are recognized and their legacy. These gifts can be used to create a new fund or add to an existing fund.
- Invest in a community impact fund
Donors are invited to participate in our strategic grants process, which is focused on priority areas deemed essential to the long-term health and vibrancy of our communities. You can contribute directly to one of our impact funds or collaborate on specific grants through a donor advised fund.
