Love Corte Madera?  Consider Planned Giving.


There are three good reasons why you should have an estate plan: Your family, yourself and your community.  Your estate plan gift to the Corte Madera Community Foundation will help build a strong heritage for Corte Madera and maintain the character of the town for future generations.  It’s a way of giving back something to the community that has been an important part of your life.

Bequests of all sizes are welcome. You may make

a bequest of cash, securities, or real estate by

designating a specific dollar amount, a certain

percentage of your estate, or a particular asset. 

A bequest is simple to arrange in consultation with

your legal advisor.  It is a revocable arrangement,

enabling you to make alterations as your own

circumstances change.  Moreover, a bequest to

the Corte Madera Community Foundation will

qualify your estate for an estate tax deduction

equal to the amount you bequeath.

The Foundation has an excellent working relationship with a highly qualified estate attorney, and we would be pleased to help you obtain whatever information you need.  Your tax-deductible donation goes directly to projects in our town, generating benefits for many years to come.

Why donate to the Corte Madera Foundation?

You’re investing in your community.

Everything we do is for the benefit of Corte Madera and its residents.  All of our boardmembers serve without compensation, and we have no paid staff or administrative overhead expenses.

You’re investing in your property values.

Numerous projects that have been accomplished in recent years, such as the Reading Garden at the Library, the Piccolo Pavilion, and the restoration of Triangle Marsh, have made this a better and more valuable place to live.  We don’t think it is a coincidence that properties in Corte Madera have held their value better than almost anyplace else in Marin in recent years.

You’ll feel proud of the contribution you’re making.

Next time you drive through Old Corte Madera Square or watch an egret land in the marsh that’s been protected, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re helping to make it all possible, now and in the future.
