Tompkins Charitable Gift Fund (TCGF)
Through our Tompkins Investment Services affiliate, we are proud to offer the Tompkins Charitable Gift Fund (''TCGF''), an investment that provides a cost-effective, tax efficient*, and convenient way to support your favorite causes.

  • A TCGF Donor Advised Fund is a charitable giving vehicle that combines immediate tax benefits* with the ability to support your favorite charities on a flexible timetable
  • A TCGF Pooled Income Fund allows you to set aside money for charity, avoid capital gains on appreciated securities, and take an immediate partial tax deduction*, all while providing a lifetime of income for up to two individuals. Find out more at 

A Charitable Trust is another alternative for giving to charity while realizing tax benefits*, and potentially still providing income for loved ones while they live.

Charitable Trusts can be an important part of estate planning. With these types of trusts, the benefits of owning securities or other assets can be split into two parts, present and future. One or more income beneficiaries can be given the immediate benefit of ownership in the form of periodic income payments from the trust. In addition, one or more "remainder beneficiaries" can receive the assets in the future.

There are many possible variations of charitable trusts, each with important income, gift, estate and generation-skipping transfer tax consequences.*  The key is to design an approach tailored to meet your own particular set of charitable intentions and family financial planning objectives. Tompkins Investment Services has been providing trust & estate services for more than a century and we are proud to adhere to the highest fiduciary standards.
