Additional Ways You Can Support The Foundation

In addition to your direct gift of land to Schowalter Foundation, there are number of other ways you can support our mission. Through planned giving, you can support Schowalter Foundation as you achieve your overall financial, tax and estate planning goals.

We’ve partnered with Everence Foundation, an affiliate of Everence to help you explore your planned giving options. Below are several ways you can grow your generosity – today and into the future. Contact Schowalter Foundation for more information or to get started.

Services provided by Everence Foundation and Everence Trust Company, affiliates of Everence.

Wills and legacy planning

Giving through your will is one of the easiest planned gifts to make. See how you can include giving to us as part of peace-of-mind planning in your will, trust and estate.

Donor advised fund

A donor advised fund is like a giving checking account. It’s a great tool to make gifts of appreciated assets such as stock, farm commodities, or real estate. Include us in your recommended charitable distributions or set up an account for a flexible, streamlined way to direct charitable gifts to us.

Types of gifts

Discover new roads of generosity by making gifts of appreciated assets you may not have considered, such as farm commodities, stocks and bonds, real estate, life insurance, retirement funds, and even valuable collections.

Charitable gift annuities

Do you have savings you would like to give in the future, but you still need income from? A gift annuity is a gift planning option that lets you share your heart for our mission, receive a tax deduction now, and also receive steady payments for life*.

Charitable trusts

Make a gift that will also provide you and your family income. Set aside and direct your assets to our organization and to your heirs – or even back to you – in a way that best fits your needs.


*Gift annuity payments are dependent on the financial ability of the issuing entity to pay.
