Immediate Gifts

Gifts of cash, whether they are for one dollar or one million dollars, always make a difference.

Appreciated assets such as stocks can be gifted, saving you capital gains taxes.

Support our Signature Events, such as the Celtic Cup Golf Tournament and the Circle of Friends Luncheon, to build support and raise funds for services you care about.

Directed Charitable Gifts

Donor Advised Fund (DAF) – Recommend a gift to the Covia Foundation from your DAF to combine favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your philanthropic goals.

Individual Retirement Account – Make a Qualified Charitable Distribution from your IRA to be sent directly to the Covia Foundation and it won’t affect your income tax exposure.

Planned gifts with income benefits

You can make a charitable gift that puts your funds to work for you providing tax benefits and lifetime income.

A Charitable Gift Annuity provides tax savings and guaranteed lifetime income at a great rate.

A Charitable Remainder Trust helps bypass capital gains taxes on appreciated assets such as real estate or stocks and provides lifetime income.

A Gift for the Future

When you plant a legacy gift in your will or estate, you make an impact beyond your own lifetime. Join Covia’s Heritage Society with a gift for the future:

  • Specify a gift for the Foundation or your community in your will or living trust.
  • Designate the Foundation as the beneficiary of an account (such as a bank account, a brokerage account, or an IRA).
  • Assign a gift to the Foundation or your community from your repayable entry fee.
