Ways to Give
Carrying Out Our Mission
There are a number of ways to support Community First Solutions, from making a single gift or a multi-year pledge, remembering us in your estate plans, and more. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, these charitable gifts are important to us and allow us to carry out our mission in a larger way. Private funding from individuals, foundations and corporations has helped to expand and update our buildings and grounds and supported high-priority projects and programming.
Support Our Campaign!
The Landing at Berkeley Square
The Landing at Berkeley Square will provide a multi-use indoor/outdoor recreational space for all residents to gather and enjoy. Our goal is to raise $500,000 to support the total expense of this project. Together, we can make our vision a reality.

Director of Development
“When you give to Community First, you give to this community in all the ways we touch people’s lives. For more than a century, the gifts of generous clients, employees, residents and family members have built a legacy of impact that helps us move our mission and further our reach. That is community.”

How to Donate
Recurring Gifts and Pledges
Many of our donors like the lasting impact and convenience of a recurring gift, and those who want to make a larger gift can spread the payments out over multiple months or years. Gifts can be processed by credit card or by direct debit using an ACH transfer from a chosen financial institution.
Memorial and Tributes
This is a meaningful way to provide a lasting tribute to a special person in your life while helping further the mission of Community First. We send the honoree or the closest family member an acknowledgment stating a memorial or tribute gift was received without mentioning the donated amount.
Gifts of Securities
We accept gifts of securities, including stocks and bonds. A gift of appreciated securities is an easy way for you to make a charitable donation, and you may benefit by avoiding paying capital gains tax and receiving a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the securities.
Estate and Planned Gifts
Plan a future gift for Community First Solutions through your will, trust, bequest, charitable gift annuity, life insurance, real estate, stock or bonds.
Some corporations encourage charitable giving by their employees by offering matching gift programs. Most companies who offer matching gift programs will match an employee or retiree’s gift up to 100%, and some matches will even double or triple the amount of your gift. Ask your employer’s Human Resources Department for more information.
Give Where It’s Most Needed
Where to Give
For more than a century, thousands of individuals, corporations and foundations have made a difference in the lives of others by becoming part of our family of donors. Whether large or small, these gifts are important and play an invaluable role in how we continue to carry out our mission.
You have the option of making an unrestricted gift to Community First Solutions or to any of the organizations in the not-for-profit network. An unrestricted gift allows our leadership to make timely decisions about where resources are most needed. The flexibility of unrestricted gifts enables us to quickly respond to high-priority projects or newly emerging or future needs that often cannot be anticipated at the time your gift is made.
