Fund Raise for BCCF
Did BCCF help you, a family member, employee or neighbor through a crisis? Create a customized fundraising page to help raise funds to make sure there is a safety net for Blaine County households in crisis. Using our own personal networks is a powerful way to make 5B Strong together.
A memorial fund page is a heartfelt way to honor someone special and invite others to join you in providing stability and hope.
From concerts to contests to art sales to marathons — creative minds and giving hearts work together to raise money.
Create a personal fundraising page to celebrate your special day by helping our neighbors in need.
Fund Drives are an easy way to support the BCCF by raising money to help increase the availability of emergency grants.
Gifts of Stock, Bonds & Mutual Funds:
A gift of appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds (held for more than one year) can be a meaningful, simple way to make a significant difference for BCCF recipients. There are two important benefits for this type of gift:
You qualify for an income tax charitable deduction for the full amount of the gift.
You pay no capital gains tax on any appreciated value of your gift, but you receive an income tax deduction for the full amount gifted.

Donor Advised Funds:
A Donor Advised Fund (DAF), which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to BCCF and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts. DAFs can also be used to convert complex assets such as real estate, tangible personal property or business interests. Set up a DAF with community foundations such as Spur Community Foundation or Idaho Community Foundation. If you include BCCF in your plans, please use our legal name and federal tax ID.

Workplace Giving and Matching Programs
Did you know that it is possible for your employer to match, double, or even triple your gift? Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match most charitable contributions made by their employees, even if you are retired. Check if your employer provides a matching gift program.
