At the Foundation we’re proud of the work we do. Our business is connecting people who care with causes that matter. Since 1976, donors have entrusted the Middletown Community Foundation with the financial capital to serve as a community leader, a catalyst and a resource for philanthropy.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN CONNECT WITH MCF AND CAUSES THAT MATTER TO YOU!
1. BECOME AN ANNUAL MEMBER. Anyone making a contribution of $50 or more is automatically a member of the Middletown Community Foundation (MCF).
2. SELECT THE GIVING LEVEL THAT’S BEST FOR YOU. Because your annual membership and gifts are critical to the ongoing operations of MCF, we’ve provided giving levels we hope will encourage all donors—large and small. Whatever level you choose—your gift is making a difference. Every tax-deductible gift is used to strengthen the Middletown Community Foundation and ultimately goes back into the community. Click on the Donate Now! button, to the left to make a gift online or mail your contribution to our office.
3. SUPPORT MCF THROUGHOUT THE YEAR WITH ADDITIONAL GIFTS. Giving is a personal decision. We encourage you to give at the time and level that is best for you and to consider increasing your giving to the next level each year or more often as you desire. All gifts are 100% tax deductible. Your gift in any amount is greatly appreciated! Learn more about annual giving here
4. OPEN A NEW CHARITABLE FUND AT MCF.
Support the cause or causes closest to your heart by creating an endowed fund at your Middletown Community Foundation. With a gift of $10,000 or more, you may leave a legacy in your community by establishing a permanent means of support for your favorite specific charities, or a field of interest such as the performing arts, a scholarship to help local students attend college, or a general grant-making fund to address the community’s greatest needs as they change. Learn what options are available HERE.
