The Outer Banks Community Foundation is prepared to accept and steward a wide variety of donated assets and giving tools, including those listed below. We are flexible and responsive to your individual needs, and we can help you find the giving technique that best fits your circumstances and goals.

We encourage donors to explore giving options with their attorney, accountant, or other professional advisor.


Cash is the easiest and most common way to contribute, whether by check, credit card, or even actual cash. These outright gifts are eligible for charitable deduction in the year the gift is made. Simply mail or deliver your donation to our office, or contribute securely via credit card on our website.
