Your Client and Philanthropic Planning
The Mankato Area Foundation provides a medium for people to make a difference by offering annual, lifetime and planned giving opportunities.

MAF in Our Community
Community foundations are a creative and flexible means for community-based philanthropy. Donors who want to give back to “Main Street” have a myriad of options. The role of the Mankato Area Foundation is to assist donors in structuring their gifts so both the donor and the community benefit from their charitable generosity.
The Mankato Area Foundation offers a wide range of planned giving/deferred gift options such as bequests, charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities and charitable lead trusts. We will work with financial advisors to garner the best tax advantages and financial security while carrying on the donors legacy of giving.
