As you know, our main objective at 2RCF is to facilitate and maintain local charitable funds for groups or individuals with special charitable projects or memorial intentions, and individuals with philanthropic goals like scholarships and endowments.
We also continue to support our other funds:
Donor advised funds are an attractive alternative to a private foundation. All legal, tax and administrative requirements are handled by 2RCF, yet the donor may recommend distributions to the charitable beneficiaries of their choosing. Donor advised funds can be established with the flexibility to support multiple and varying charitable causes each year.
Nick and Judy Huston established a donor-advised fund in 2007. The Huston Family Fund has awarded grants to the Basalt Regional Library District and the Glenwood Springs Post Independent’s Holiday Fund.
An endowment is the “gift that keeps on growing, keeps on giving”. As the initial gift of a donor continues to grow through prudent asset management, it also produces earnings that are distributed according to the intentions of the donors. It is a very flexible way to assure a continuous and perpetual stream of income for a purpose, organization, or area that is close to your heart. An endowed fund, contrary to what most people think, can be started with $5,000.
2 Rivers Community Foundation has chosen Western Colorado Community Foundation (WCCF) to be its endowment partner. As a regional Foundation, WCCF has the longevity, structure, administrative office, and legal oversight to manage endowments established for the benefit of the Glenwood Springs and surrounding communities. All required legal, tax and administrative requirements are handled by WCCF on behalf of the donor. If you are interested in this very flexible and permanent vehicle to support a favorite charitable organization, to memorialize a loved one, or simply to give back to your community through the 2 Rivers Community Foundation, please contact us.
Don and PJ Click have chosen to leave a gift to the community of Glenwood Springs following their passing. Individuals can make provisions for a future gift to their community as part of their will or estate plan. A gift can be managed as a donor-advised fund, a scholarship fund, a memorial fund, or be given to the 2RCF Friends of the Foundation Fund. If you have made such a bequest, please contact a board member so that you may be included on our Legacy Society roster.
