What to Give

Communities Foundation of Texas welcomes a broad range of assets—both current and deferred—in order to fulfill your philanthropic intent consistent with your financial and estate plans.

We provide the knowledge, expertise and due diligence to evaluate, receive, manage and liquidate contributions in the most caring, efficient and tax-favorable manner. We look forward to working with you in the creation of a donor-advised fund, a designated fund for a beloved organization, a charitable gift annuity or other gift arrangement that best meets your charitable goals.

Our goal is to assist you and your financial advisors in making your gift a reality and/or to collaborate on a gift plan that meets your financial and philanthropic objectives.

Simply call or email Geri Jacobs to get started at 214-750-4255.


In addition to cash and marketable securities (stocks, bonds and shares on mutual funds), we work with our donors and their professional advisors to facilitate the contribution of:

 Closely-held and Restricted Stock Contributing closely-held or restricted stock can be cost-effective ways to maximize philanthopic options while minimizing tax liability.
 Business/Partnership Interests A donor can contribute a whole or partial interest in an investment or business.
 Tangible Personal Property Examples of tangible personal property include rare books, furniture and artwork.
 Real Estate A gift of real estate may be a principal residence or vacation home, a farm, a commercial building, a subdivision lot, or unimproved land.
 Oil, Gas and Mineral Rights Mineral rights or oil and gas assets can be contributed to Communities Foundation of Texas.
 Retirement Plan Assets

Gifts of retirement plan assets can maximize charitable contributions while reducing highly taxable distributions.

 Gift of Life Insurance

We accept many life insurance plans.
