Recurring Donations


You or your fund donors can make a recurring gift (monthly, annually, etc.) via credit card (see Online Donations below)




Online Donations


Once you establish a fund at NVCF, you will receive a unique web address your donors can use to contribute to your fund. Anyone with a bank account or credit card may make a donation to your fund. Credit card processing fees are approximately 2.5% and are deducted from the donation before it is credited to your account. If your organization has its own website, you may want to arrange to place a donation link on your own page. Contact help@nvcf.org for information on this option.




In-Kind Donations


In the event of an in-kind gift, when a non-cash gift is received, please follow the instructions below:

  1. You must issue a thank you note and receipt using the letter below as a template.
  2. Please issue the letter AFTER receipt of the gift.
  3. Fill in the log for all in-kind receipts and submit to NVCF within 48 hours of the event.

Public Fundraising


Family, friends, and colleagues – anyone can make a gift to your fund. It’s as simple as mailing the gift to the Foundation with instructions to place it in your fund.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON FUNDRAISING FOR YOUR FUND:
Raising money for your fund by holding an event by soliciting businesses and other foundations is more complex. You will, for legal purposes, be doing so on behalf of the North Valley Community Foundation. Before you begin planning your event or solicitation, please contact Carolyn Engstrom, Client Care Manager, at cengstrom@nvcf.org. We can work together to ensure the event is in compliance with IRS rules so your donors will be eligible for a tax deduction and you, your fund and the Foundation are protected from liability.





With your fund at NVCF, you can build a permanent legacy of philanthropy. You may add to your fund at any time. If you’re considering making a gift to your fund, we encourage you to contact us to discuss how you can gain the maximum financial and tax benefit.
