Logan Community Foundation


The Logan Community Foundation, established September 24, 1998, is unique in the world of philanthropy. Although created to address issues within the community of Logan, the foundation also serves as a vehicle for all citizens to impact Logan's future. Unlike private or corporate foundations that are endowed by a particular person, family or business, the Logan Community Foundation holds funds contributed by individuals and businesses that see the value of pooling their assets with fellow citizens to improve the community.

  • Benefits of the Logan Community Foundation

    A Permanent Tribute - As a living memorial, funds are intended to carry out the donor's charitable interests in perpetuity.

    Professional Administration - The Foundation relieves donors of administrative responsibilities associated with philanthropy and other community resources. The Foundation assures continuity and responsible management in all areas of it's work.

    Tax Effectiveness - Since 1999 the Logan Community Foundation has had 501(c)3 status providing the highest level tax deductibility for the donor.

    An Overview of the Ways to Give

    Outright Gifts - An outright gift allows the donor to transfer cash or property to the Foundation. Such gifts may be deducted on federal income tax returns to the extent allowable by law. For gifts of appreciated property, the donor also avoids capital gains tax. Outright gifts may include cash, publicly traded securities, closely traded securities, tangible personal property, real estate, insurance and retirement assets such as IRAs.

    Gifts of Interest Income - A Charitable Lead Trust can be described as "a gift you get back." It allows a donor to give the income from assets placed in a trust to the Foundation for a term of years, while retaining the principal for the donor, heirs or a third party on the termination of the trust. The charitable lead trust is often used as a "tax-smart" method of passing on assets to heirs.

    Gifts of Remainder Trusts - The Charitable Remainder Trust can be described as "gifts that give back." Charitable remainder trusts make it possible for the donor to establish an irrevocable gift of cash or property, while retaining an annual income stream from the trust. Donors using this form of giving are allowed an income tax deduction for federal returns equal to the present value of the remainder interest.

    Gifts by Will - Donors often make charitable gifts by will. Whether made on an outright, residual, or contingent basis, a gift by will can be a simple, effective way to realize your giving goals.

    Gifts of Retirement Plan Assets (IRAs, 401Ks, 403Bs - Qualified retirement plans can be subject to both an estate tax and an income tax when left to heirs. More and more donors are choosing to designate undistributed assets in qualified retirement plans to a charity, while leaving assets subject only to the estate tax to heirs.
