Tax Benefits
Gifts to the Orange County Community Foundation are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law, as OCCF is a 501(c)(3) public charity under the IRS code.

Simplicity
Avoid the administrative nightmares and the legal complexities by establishing a fund with OCCF. We can maneuver the way through IRS and Indiana Department of Revenue compliance for you, and you can fully avoid the complications of a private foundation.

Less Expensive
Maintaining a fund through OCCF is much less expensive than the cost of operating a private foundation, as we provide investment management, governmental compliance, and many other vital services at little cost to the donor.

Availability
We accept a broad spectrum of gifts, including cash, appreciated stocks, mutual funds and other marketable securities, as well as life insurance policies, retirement plan assets and other tangible assets.

We are from your community
Every member of our staff and Board of Directors is an Orange County resident, and it is our mission to make Orange County a better place for everyone here. We understand the issues facing the county, and act as convener and collaborator in the efforts to address those issues. We truly do seek to “connect people who care with causes that matter to Orange County.”
