“Stanislaus Community Foundation provides a vehicle which allows our clients to control the timing and ultimate beneficiary of their gifts.  Working with the Foundation assures the desired tax result of a gift to a public charity, but leaves our clients with the flexibility to determine the ultimate use of their funds.”
