Oakes Area Community Foundation

Oakes PictureEstablished in 1998 by a grant from Mr. Frank Larson, the Oakes Area Community Foundation provides a method of receiving funds ⁄ donations to benefit projects or non-profits in the Oakes area. The fund is affiliated with the North Dakota Community Foundation, which is a non-profit tax-exempt corporation under IRS code 501(c)(3) and North Dakota Law.

Management & Purpose

All contributions and bequests received by the Oakes Area Community Foundation are placed into a permanent endowment fund. Earnings from the fund are used to support projects or programs in the county as determined by an Advisory Committee of local citizen volunteers. The North Dakota Community Foundation provides professional management for the fund. Gifts to the fund are tax deductible to the full extent of Federal and State Law.

Matching Gift Opportunity

Oakes pictureThe North Dakota Community Foundation annually matches all gifts to the Oakes Area Community Foundation dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000.  If the community raises $25,000, an additional $5,000 will be added to the matching total*.

*Match policy subject to change.

Types of Gifts

Outright Gifts
Money, securities, or appreciated property may be transferred to the fund. The donor receives a tax deduction based on the value at the time of transfer. The donor will not be subject to capital gains tax on any appreciation.
Life Insurance
By naming the fund as irrevocable beneficiary of a life insurance polity, donors receive an immediate tax deduction. Premiums paid thereafter are deductible from income tax.
Donors may provide gifts through a will for a stated sum, percentage, or residue and remainder of the estate, real or personal.
Gifts honoring individuals are an appropriate way of indicating one´s care and concern.
Deferred Gifts
Deferred gifts may provide a lifetime income to donor or designee. Upon death, the residue of the gift becomes property of the fund.
