Annual Giving

At each end of the year at The Moline Foundation giving drive is presented to each and every donor through the mail. The letter enclosed shares the past year and the remarkable opportunities that your donations have provided for the surrounding communities. Please contact us if you would like to be on the mailing list. A return envelope is included to make it easy to respond. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your continued support.

Charitable Gift Annuity

A Charitable Gift Annuity provides you with a fixed income for the rest of your life at rates ranging from about 4% to 9%, depending on your age.

Donor Advised Funds

Donor-advised funds are the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicle in the United States because they are one of the easiest and most tax-advantageous ways to give.


A donor-advised fund is like a charitable investment account to support charitable organizations that are important to you. When you contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a donor-advised fund, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth to help support nonprofit organizations through

The Moline Foundation.

IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution

You can contribute to our collective future while effectively lowering your tax liability. A popular, tax-smart option for giving is a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA). To be eligible, you must be 70 ½ years of age or older at the time of distribution; total charitable gifts cannot exceed $100,000 per taxpayer each year, and gifts must be outright and transferred directly from your IRA account to

The Moline Foundation.

Legacy Giving

Preserve your legacy with a gift to The Moline Foundation today. Your donation can help strengthen our community now and for future generations. Please get in touch with us to let us know that you've included The Moline Foundation in your estate plans.

Life Insurance

A donation of insurance may benefit the donor and the charity more than a cash gift. It may reduce the donor's taxable estate. The charity will receive the entire face amount of the policy upon the insured's death. It can represent a substantial windfall. No limits exist on the size of the policy that may be donated because charitable donations have no ceiling for estate tax purposes. Naming The Moline Foundation, as a beneficiary, ensures the privacy of the transaction, which can be important for donors who wish to keep their gifting intentions anonymous. 

Named Endowment

You can establish a permanent named fund to support the causes in the Quad Cities and the surrounding region that are the most important to you. You can even create a fund that promotes specific parts of what we do—help with different needs in the area, including helping the homeless, feeding the hungry, educating our future leaders, and funding arts and culture programs, for example — forever. Start a conversation with us today about a named endowment fund. 


A scholarship is a financial support awarded to a student, based on academic achievement or other criteria that may include financial need, for the purpose of schooling. There are two types of scholarships – merit-based and need-based. The Moline Foundation considers both needs.

Will or Trust Bequest

This gift is made through your will or trust and can name an asset, a dollar amount, or a percentage of the assets/estate. You will designate this type of gift through a document drafted by your attorney. A will or trust bequest can be changed later if you wish.
