Personalize Your Giving

When you work with Stark Community Foundation you get personal, trusted service. Through a variety of charitable planning services, our team of giving experts helps you plan and personalize your charitable giving to align with your passions and desired results.


For donors who welcome more assistance in developing a giving plan, we offer a unique and strategic set of giving exercises that lead you through the process of:

  • reviewing your past giving
  • considering your charitable motivations
  • identifying your interest areas
  • setting your giving guidelines
  • developing your charitable goals

Check out our Charitable Giving Workbook.

Name Your Fund

Name your charitable fund in honor of your family, a loved one or choose to remain anonymous— the choice is yours.

Designate Your Successor(s)

Identify who will carry out your philanthropic legacy by recommending grants from your fund after your lifetime. Your successor can be your child, a family member or a close friend. As Your Trusted Partner in Giving, you can also choose Stark Community Foundation to ensure your charitable intent is carried out in perpetuity.

Involve Your Family

For families who want to make giving a tradition, we can help facilitate family meetings —or start the conversation— about what causes and projects you want to support and their significance to your family.

Connect with Giving Opportunities

Our team of experts can connect you with local organizations within your area(s) of interest and inform you of current needs or giving opportunities that align with your goals.

Review Your Giving Annually

A member of our Advancement Team can contact you annually to review your giving and grant strategies as part of our ongoing stewardship efforts.
