How to Make a Donation
Any donation amount automatically makes you a member!
Did you know that your gift may be doubled or even tripled? Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match tax-deductible charitable contributions made by their employees. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Check with your employer to find out if they have a matching gift policy.
Once you decide on the donation amount, you can pay with your major credit card: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and if you’re registered with PayPal, you can also pay with eCheck. Just click one of the donate buttons and you will be taken to a secure PayPal page to process your donation.

Give an Enduring Gift
A gift to the Fox Cities Greenways 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 stability to weather difficult times.
Having our endowment established within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region 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.
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
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.
