Ways to donate

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

These assets include:

  • Cash is a quick and simple way to make an immediate impact.
    • Make your donation to any of our funds online.
    • Via check. Our address is: Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation, Suite 700, 324 W. Superior St., Duluth, MN 55802.
    • Via ACH. For wire transfer instructions click HERE.
  • 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 deduction and donors also can avoid capital gains taxes. For instructions on how to transfer stock click HERE.
  • 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, 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.
