Making a Donation
The Piqua Community Foundation accepts donations, large or small, by check or money order. Distributions from an I.R.A. or other gifting account may be made to The Foundation, which has been designated a charitable not-for-profit organization by the I.R.S. [a 501 (c) (3) organization.]
Please mail to us at P.O. Box 226, Piqua, Ohio 45356, and include your name, address and any designation.
Donations may be made in memory or in honor of a loved one by including that information along with the gift. The Foundation will notify your honoree or his or her family of your gift (not the amount) if you provide the contact name and address.
Designating Your Gift
Some donors request that their gifts go into a specific fund of The Foundation based on that fund’s gifting. If no fund is designated by the donor, gifts are directed into the Community Fund and will be used to make more and larger community grants to local schools and not-for-profit organizations.
