RCACF Launches Gift Back Campaign

Russell County Area Community Foundation LogoThanksgiving is a time to give thanks and Black/Plaid Friday the time to buy. Now, Giving Tuesday is the time to give back.

This holiday season, please 'Gift Back' to Russell County by giving a tax deductible gift to the Russell County Area Community Foundation.

RCACF Executive Director Angie Muller says every year, the community foundation receives hundreds of applications to support charitable organizations, students in need and community projects in the Russell County area. Unfortunately, these pressing needs exceed the funds that are available to grant. That's why every gift makes a difference. Community Foundation programs support a variety of charities in Russell County, including hunger relief, education, park improvement, the arts and historic preservation.

Your 'Gift Back' to Russell County will be split between the Fund for a Better Russell County Area and the Community Foundation Administrative Fund, unless otherwise noted. While cash is the simplest way to give, there may be some tax benefits to giving other types of assets, such as appreciated stock, real estate, life insurance, grain or livestock. Contact your professional advisor to see what works best for your tax situation.

Gifts to the Community Foundation are a wonderful way to honor teachers, friends, employees, loved ones and other special people in your life. Simply tell the RCACF who your gift is in honor of and they will mail that person a letter telling them of your kindness. Thanks to the generosity of the Kansas Health Foundation, gifts to the Fund for a Better Russell County Area and the Foundation Administrative Fund are matched 50 cents on the dollar. The match money earned supports the public health of the Russell County area and Foundation operations.
