DONORS – Ways to Give

Gifts of any amount to an existing Foundation fund are always welcomed and valued. Or, donors may wish to establish their own fund.

The following are a variety of ways you can contribute to the Foundation.


A gift of cash is the simplest and most convenient way of giving to the Foundation. Cash can be given in the form of currency, checks, or money orders. Checks or money orders may be made payable to the Community Foundation of Will County or to the fund designated to receive the gift. For your convenience, you may wish to print out our Contribution Form.


Please download our Contribution Form and mail to:

The Community Foundation of Will County

Joliet, IL 60435


Gifts of appreciated securities provide considerable advantages to donors. When securities have been held for the required period of time, a donor can deduct the full fair market value of the gift and avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciated amount of the securities. For your convenience, you may wish to print out a stock electronic transfer form to provide to your brokerage firm.

Matching Gifts

Your employer and/or your spouse’s employer may double or even triple the value of your gift. Please send your company’s matching gift form to maximize this benefit for the community.
