What You Can Give
Each individual, family, or organization we work with has unique charitable interests and unique financial circumstances. We help you make the most of both, so you receive the greatest return on your community investment.
Types of Assets
We can work with you to accept a variety of assets. You can create or add to a fund with any of the following:
- Publicly traded securities (e.g. stocks and bonds)
- Real Estate
- Life Insurance
- Retirement assets
- Closely held securities and business interests
- Tangible personal property
- Mineral, timber, and distribution rights
- Other complex assets

Giving appreciated stock that you have owned for more than one year is one of the most tax-advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can reduce your capital gains tax while supporting Community Foundation for Monterey County.
A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield your heirs from taxes while funding CFMC's future.
Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. You can make a gift of a life insurance policy without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.
A gift of real estate allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive tax and income advantages, and make a significant charitable gift to CFMC.
A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support CFMC.
