Matching Fund Grants
To encourage contributions, the Sterling-Rock Falls Community Trust has established a limited-time matching grant program. Each donation of $250 up to a maximum of $10,000 will be matched at 25%. As an example, a gift of $250 will generate $312.50; a $1,000 contribution will become $1,250.
Choices in Giving
Choose A Type Of Fund
We offer a variety of funds that are flexible to meet our donors’ different charitable needs:
- Unrestricted Funds offer the broadest giving option, allowing grants to be made to wherever our Board of Trustees determines our community’s needs are the greatest.
- Field-Of-Interest Funds create grants that meet needs in a particular field or geographic area that is of interest to you.
- Donor-Advised Funds enable you to recommend specific organizations to receive grants.
- Scholarship Funds, as described above help students pursue academic goals. You may be assured that grants to these groups remain relevant over time and responsive to changing circumstances.
Your Choices In Giving
Your gift to the Sterling-Rock Falls Community Trust will be invested wisely to provide maximum returns with safety.
You may specify the General Fund or establish a named fund or additionally create a Donor Advised Fund, subject to the minimum amount required, which allows the donor to specify how these monies will be used.
Almost any kind of asset can be used to start your fund, such as cash, publicly traded securities, private foundation assets and retirement assets.
The trustees can also discuss other options with you, such as bequests, charitable gift annuities, life income, and deferred charitable gift annuities.
You may consider naming the Sterling-Rock Falls Community Trust as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy, an existing policy, or a new policy can constitute the gift.
