Your support is of great value to us. When you give to the Winona Community Foundation, you are a catalyst in ensuring we can do what we do today, tomorrow, and even better, for future generations.
At its heart, the Foundation exists to serve as a permanent source of charitable dollars for the benefit of all who live, work, and play in this wonderful place we call home. These dollars come from people like you, who have a giving heart and a love for our community. We all want our community to thrive, and we want to be your partner. When you invest in the Winona Community Foundation, you take on our community’s biggest challenges – and seize our biggest opportunities. Together, we can help our community flourish.
In addition to helping the community, we want it to be rewarding for you as well! That’s why the Foundation is making it easy to learn about the financial tools you can use to wisely plan your gift so that it can return benefits to you.
We’re happy to announce that we have launched a new planned giving website to make it simple for you to start your journey with a legacy gift! This website has all the resources, tools, tips, and tricks you’ll need to feel comfortable with your planned giving. For instance, did you know…

- You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime
- You can reduce taxes for your children and deliver and extraordinary gift to the community
- You can convert surplus life insurance coverage into the gift of a lifetime
With planned giving, you can provide long-lasting support for your loved ones and the Winona Community Foundation all while enjoying financial benefits for yourself. These gifts are simple to arrange and allow you to be a good steward of the resources you intend to leave behind. Best of all, you can leave a lasting statement to the world about who you are and what you care about. Get started today by visiting our new planned giving website.
