Ways to donate

We make it easy for you to support the community you love.
We accept an array of assets for contributing to or establishing a fund.

These include:

  • Cash is a quick and simple way to make an immediate impact.
    • Make your donation online.
    • You also can bring or mail us a check. Our address is: Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation, Suite 700, 324 W. Superior St., Duluth, MN 55802.
  • IRAs are ideal assets from which to make charitable gifts. Up to $100,000 annually can be distributed tax-free for those at least 70½ years old.
  • Securities, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, can provide tax advantages, as their full fair market value can be a charitable deductible and donors also can avoid capital gains taxes.
  • Closely-held stock in a business also can be an effective way to achieve philanthropic goals in a tax-efficient manner.
  • Real estate contributions can include: homes, cabins, vacation properties, farms, commercial buildings, mineral interests and other income-producing or non-income-producing land. 
  • Bequests, by naming the foundation in your will, trust or beneficiary designation, can provide a legacy of charitable support.
  • Life insurance, through a gift of a policy no longer needed, provides support as well as a potential charitable tax deduction. Donors can also name the foundation as a life insurance beneficiary.
