Giving through the Lawton Community Foundation:
Why It Makes Sense
Because we are an affiliated fund of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity, gifts to the Lawton Community Foundation receive the maximum tax benefits allowed.
We Keep It Simple
By establishing a fund at the Lawton Community Foundation, you can avoid administrative burdens, legal complexities and compliance requirements associated with private foundations.
We are able to accept a wide variety of gifts including cash, appreciated stocks, mutual funds and other marketable securities, life insurance policies, retirement plan assets and business-related assets such as closely held stock from S corp., C corp. and LLCs.
Because we administer more than 1,000 funds coupled with our own administrative endowment, we are able to offer a wide range of services at a much lower cost when compared to operating a private foundation or similar entities.
