When NOT To Give Through SPCCF

Our community foundation does not compete for regular donations you already make to existing organizations. So there are times when giving via SPCCF is not the right giving tool.

If you are already contributing in the ways outlined below, please keep doing so!

  • Annual donations to a local non-profit. These contributions help provide day-to-day operating funds to that organization.
  • Annual donations of items for auctions and fundraisers for local organizations. These gifts, of your time and items of value, provide critical support for these organizations.
  • If you plan a significant donation to a local organization for a specific use or purchase, please proceed directly with that donation. Community foundations DO NOT manage donations where there is a specific use for those funds within a year or two.
