FAQ’s

Giving is easy through our online donor portal. We have many options, including making an unrestricted gift that gives TGF the flexibility to use where it is most needed.

TGF is unique because we are permanent. Our intent is to create a source of funding that will support our Guilford community in perpetuity. Our mission is to improve the quality of life in Guilford now, and for generations to come. We act as a facilitator, advisor, and mediator for area nonprofits as they work together to solve community issues and promote a better life for Guilford residents.

Donors are welcome to give at any time during the year. The Guilford Foundation organizes two formal appeals a year: an operating appeal (June) and a year-end appeal (December).

There are several options for contributions: outright gifts of cash, stock, or other assets (all of which qualify for maximum tax advantage), bequests through estate planning, or future gifts, such as naming The Guilford Foundation as a beneficiary of an IRA or insurance policy.

Given the time sensitivity of transferring stock, we ask that you contact The Guilford Foundation before transferring and let us know once the transfer is complete.  We’ve provided the appropriate contact TGF contact information and the Brokerage Information, including account and clearing numbers.

Members of the legacy Circle have pledged to include TGF in their estate planning – through a bequest or naming TGF as a beneficiary for the IRA or insurance policy.

Donors direct how their gift is utilized. They can give an unrestricted gift to the foundation that allows TGF to decide the best use. Selecting one of our existing charitable funds created by community members in support of an area of interest or specific nonprofit organization is another way. Another donation option is to create their own fund.
