Give a Stock Gift

As always, please consult your personal tax advisor for additional information on your charitable giving goals and giving the gift of a stock.

Give through a Donor-Advised Fund

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is one option when making charitable decisions and one that can help create a lasting legacy for you and your family. Whether your DAF has been established with a national entity, or with a more locally based wealth management firm or community foundation as the sponsoring organization, please consider making the MCFI Foundation a beneficiary of your DAF.

Let your sponsoring organization know of your intent and charitable goal. The MCFI Foundation is a qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the EIN 47-2334925. Disbursements from a DAF can be made payable to:

MCFI Foundation
c/o Kasey Chard
2020 W. Wells Street
Milwaukee, WI 53233

If you have an existing DAF, consider an investment in healthy and hopeful communities with the MCFI Foundation as a beneficiary of your gift! As always, please consult your personal tax advisor for additional information on your charitable giving goals and DAF disbursements.
