Last fall we prepared a document to help people better understand charitable deductions and the tax law changes. Tax time has come and gone and people are asking what they could have done differently. People might consider "bunching" their donations, opening a donor-advised fund or donating part of their required RMD if they are 70 1/2 years old. Here is a document that will help explain these strategies.
Community Foundation Has Successful Year, Change on the Horizon 2018 was a big year for the Marshfield Area Community Foundation, Inc (MACFI). We celebrated our 25th Anniversary and held an event to celebrate. The evening was highlighted by making a $25,000 contribution to Marshfield Respite Care. After 6 years at Partner's Bank MACFI moved to new offices located within the 2nd Street Community Center. We thank Partner's Bank for their generosity over the last six years. Our new location offers good contact with many of our constituents in a very visible location.
The Marsfhield Area Community Foundation will be moving from our 907 N. Centrl Ave. location within Partner's bank to the 2nd Street Community Center at 211 E. 2nd Street Tuesday 1/21/2019. We will be closed for business on Tuesday and Wednesday.
We at MACFI have invested in a new scholarship online platform to make applying for scholarships easier, have more fidelity with donor's wishes, and make the evaluation process smoother. Each student needs to create a profile with a username and password. You will then be asked to do an eligibility quiz to see which of our scholarships you are eligible to apply for.
