Year-End is Coming

November has crept through the door, and we didn’t even notice. With the holiday season just weeks away, your Community Foundation is gearing up for a busy fourth quarter. We typically see the highest number of fund contributions during the last two months of the year.

Life Insurance as a Charitable Asset

Using life insurance as part of your estate planning is common. Life insurance is one of the most efficient assets for individuals to leave their families when they pass. Other assets, such as IRAs, have significant tax consequences for heirs and are often left to charities since they don’t take a tax hit. However, many people don’t consider using their life insurance as a charitable asset. Have you?

Big Brothers Big Sisters Needs YOU!

Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City (BBBSKC) works to clear the path to a child's biggest possible future by matching them with a caring adult mentor in a one-to-one friendship. "Bigs" help "Littles" ignite, empower, and defend their potential by standing with them.

Planned Giving. No Zombies.

Event – Celebrating Citizens

Sponsored by Centerpoint Medical Center, the Toast of Our Towns annual Citizens' Reception is a private event where local Mayors introduce their Citizen of the Year to a select group of Foundation friends, volunteers, and partners.

Giving Crypto

Markets are down across the board, and that includes cryptocurrency. With this in mind, you may not be thinking about a Bitcoin or Ethereum donation today.

Creating a Legacy - Talking about Your Legacy

When is a good time to talk to your loved ones about a legacy plan? How about over Sunday dinner, during halftime, or while washing dishes? Whenever you are all in a comfortable space, that could be the right time.

Give Smart - Why Endow?

Here at Truman Heartland, we often talk about endowments or endowed funds, but unless you are in the community foundation or financial planner industry, you may not know exactly what that means.

Leaving a Legacy – Sustaining the Foundation

The Sustainability Fund for Truman Heartland Community Foundation is our permanent endowment, providing operational support to build a better community far into the future.

Creating a Legacy - Gifting your Retirement

You have spent your whole life working hard and saving for your retirement. Maybe you did such a good job saving that you have more in your IRA or other retirement accounts than you need. In that case, you can use all or part of your retirement assets for charitable giving.
