Modie Park Endowment
The Modie Park Conservancy Endowment at the Idaho Community Foundation is another way to donate to the Conservancy. Your donation there grows the money being invested by the Foundation for the Conservancy. A portion of that fund is distributed to the Conservancy each year. Consider including the Conservancy Endowment in your will or trust. Appreciated securities can also be donated to the Conservancy through the Foundation. For more information email email@example.com.

The entire distribution is added to the current year’s income and is taxable. If you don’t need all or part of the distribution, consider donating it to the Conservancy directly or through the endowment and avoid paying income tax on it.
