Talking with your Clients


Making an annual contribution or leaving a bequest to Lakewood Ranch Community Fund may be good choices for donors who want to make an impact in the community where they live and work but do not have specific preferences to individual nonprofit organizations.

If your clients have more defined interests, however, creating a fund of their own at Manatee Community Foundation can be a great fit.

Good Questions to Ask:

  • What organizations do you or your family currently support as a volunteer or a donor?
  • Would you like to be remembered with a charitable legacy?
  • Considering the future of our community, what issues are most important to you?
  • Do you have a church, university or other organization that you would like to support in perpetuity?
