We also continue to support the publication and distribution of Fox Cities Trail Maps.In addtion, Fox Cities Greenways board members work with muncipalities and counties in Wisconsin’s Fox Valley to expand and connect a comprehensive trail system. They are active in organizing and promoting the Safe Routes to School Program, Trails for Tomorrow workshops, and Bike to Work Week. Did you know that your gift may be doubled or even tripled?

Give an enduring gift
Some causes are so good that supporting them for a lifetime just isn’t enough. If that’s the way you feel about Fox Cities Greenways, a gift to our endowment can enable you to extend your charitable support forever.
Building the endowment creates a permanent base of support for the work we do. We are able to use the interest earned on the endowment to work with local towns and municipalities to expand and connect a comprehensive trail system, but the principal remains as a permanent source of income. It provides more stability to weather difficult times.
Having the endowment established within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, as ours is, assures that the funds will be invested safely and wisely by local money managers and that your charitable intent as a donor will be followed even if our organization changes.
Giving to our endowment can be as simple as contributing monetary gifts from a birthday or anniversary party, or as intricate as planning your estate. The Community Foundation offers a wide variety of gift options:
Cash: Make a gift by check (made payable to CFFVR / Fox Cities Greenways) in any amount and mail it to: Community Foundation, PO Box 563, Appleton, WI 54912. You may also contribute through convenient automatic bank withdrawals or by credit card over the phone or online through the Community Foundation’s web site www.cffoxvalley.org
Securities: Donate appreciated stock or bonds and avoid capital gains taxes. You may claim a charitable tax deduction for the securities’ current market value. Please call the Community Foundation before making these types of gifts.
Real estate: That vacation cottage your family no longer uses or investment property that has appreciated in value over the years may offer you the greatest tax advantages.
Estate planning: Consider gifts through a will or trust, retirement assets or insurance policies. You can also accomplish your family, financial and charitable goals with a gift that provides income for you or a loved one for life.
Contributing to Fox Cities Greenways’ endowment means you are creating a legacy of support for a cause you believe in for many generations.
