Individuals & Families

Create your legacy! Let Renaissance Charitable Foundation Inc. (“RCF”) help you fulfill your philanthropic goals and create your legacy through our Donor-Advised Fund Program. A Donor-Advised Fund is a simple way to pass on your family’s legacy, as well as, the opportunity to involve your children in tying together philanthropy and shared family values.

RCF will work with you and your financial advisor to help create a customized giving plan to support qualified charities. You will benefit from a charitable tax deduction while allowing your investments to grow tax-free. This gives you the opportunity to plan how to support your favorite charities in order to provide the largest impact.
