Contributing to the Foundation

In its 16-year history, Saratoga Foundation has awarded about a half million dollars in grants to fund projects of significance to Saratoga’s residents.

The Saratoga Foundation welcomes the financial support of individuals and corporations. With your help, we can make sure that Saratoga’s way of life endures for generations to come. Financial gifts to the Foundation can have a powerful impact because 100% of your gift and its appreciation will be distributed, without overhead expenses.

We encourage you to think of the Foundation in your annual giving and in your estate planning. We would also like you to consider making a major Founder’s contribution and joining the Board of Trustees.

Giving to the Foundation allows you to:

  • show your appreciation for the Saratoga you enjoy
  • see your contribution used for a rich variety of important community purposes
  • be served by a board of serious and thoughtful givers who seek out the most effective use of your gift each year
  • have the tax advantage of donating appreciated assets to a public foundation

The Saratoga Foundation is a 501( c)(3) public foundation that can accept appreciated assets as well as bequests. An IRS designation letter is available on request (Tax ID No. 14-178-7105).

A downloadable fact sheet is available for you to print for your personal use or to share with clients planning their estates.
