We offer a wide range of gifting options and vehicles that you can use to establish or add to a named charitable fund. Since we are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a public charity, donors are provided with the maximum tax benefits allowed by law.  Once your fund is established you can add to it at any time and in any dollar amount.

Gifts to the Topeka Community Foundation may take a variety of forms.  Many are outright gifts by living donors either on a onetime or a periodic basis.  Others are bequests and testamentary gifts that take effect upon the donor’s death. 

The Foundation may accept the following types of outright contributions:


  • Cash

  • Publicly-traded securities

  • Life insurance policies

  • Real property

  • Tangible personal property

  • Closely-held stock

  • Partnership interests 



    The Foundation reserves the right to refuse any gift that it believes is not in the best interests of the Foundation.
