Donor Opportunities

Developing a Legacy of Service and Care

The Mt. Pleasant Area Community Foundation provides a simple, powerful and highly personal approach to giving. We offer a variety of giving tools to help people achieve their charitable goals.

You can make a gift of cash, stocks, bonds, real estate, or other assets to your community foundation. Most charitable gifts qualify for maximum tax advantage under federal and state law.


Endowed Fund

Giving to the Isabella County Commission on Aging Endowed Fund is giving to the care of the Elders in our community.

The (ICCOA) Endowed Fund allows you to give a generous gift that will have a lasting effect on the services received by the Elders in our county. See this link to the Mt. Pleasant Community Foundation website.

Bequest by Will

The elder population is the fastest growing age segment of our society. The care of our Elders is becoming more and more expensive. It is the goal of the Isabella County Commission on Aging to maintain a level of quality care, and in order to this we need to provide a more stable long-term source of funds. The establishment of the ICCOA Endowed Fund is a step in that direction.


Friends of Isabella Seniors (FOIS)

Friends of Isabella Seniors was established in 1979. It is a 501©(3) non-profit organization with a Federal ID. Friends of Isabella Seniors is also registered with the State of Michigan as a fund raising organization.
