Contributions may be made in a variety of ways including, but not limited to, the following:


  • an outright gift or pledge of money, securities or property
  • provide for a bequest in your will;
  • take out (or transfer) a gift of life insurance, naming the Foundation as the beneficiary;
  • a gift in memory of a friend, relative or employee;
  • perpetuate the name of a friend or relative through an in memoriam gift;
  • a multi-year pledge;
  • set up a donor advised fund;
  • set up a planned gift such as a charitable remainder trust;
  • transfer an existing foundation, charitable trust or endowment.


Each gift, small and large, is important to the Foundation. When you decide to establish your fund or support one of The Killarney Foundation’s existing Funds, you will join with people from all walks of life with one thing in common – the desire to make a difference in your community ….. forever.

Your gift will give year after year because your donation is invested as a permanent endowment fund (community fund) and is managed professionally.

It is simple to set up a fund. There are many ways to do it, often with significant tax benefits to you, the donor. We will work with you and your lawyer, accountant, life insurance agent or financial planner to find the approach that works best.


When you establish a fund with the Foundation, you choose its name and decide how it will work to benefit the community and fulfill your charitable goals. Depending on your wishes, your fund will fall into one of the following categories:

Undesignated Funds

Also known as the General Fund, these funds allow the Board of Directors to decide where earnings can be used most effectively each year.



You advise the Foundation each year regarding the charitable organization(s) to benefit from your fund’s earnings.

Designated Funds

You specify one or more charitable organizations to be the perpetual beneficiaries of the annual income from your fund.

Designated funds may be of particular interest to a charitable organization wanting to set up an endowment fund to ensure its financial stability in the long term. This type of designated fund is referred to as an Agency Endowment Fund.
