Through a Planned Gift to The Montclair Foundation, you can create a future fund that will award grants in perpetuity to the causes you care about.
A Planned Gift empowers you to create the framework now for giving to your favorite causes after your death. Your planned gift may be in the form of a bequest in your will or trust document; life income plans, such as a charitable remainder trust or charitable gift annuity; gifts of remainder interest in a residence; charitable lead trust; or a gift of life insurance; retirement plan assets; or other forms. In addition to working with us, we recommend you consult with your attorney and tax/financial advisors to determine the best vehicle to meet your goals.
Following are some of the most common means through which planned gifts are made. We are always available to assist you and your professional advisor in creating the most effective and efficient plan for your estate gift.

Our grants program reviews and awards money twice annually to a wide variety of local nonprofits. This funding makes a big impact on small budgeted organizations aiding the arts, family services and underserved communities in Montclair. These grants are funded through donations, grants, stocks and securities, IRAs, legacy/ planned gifts as well as gifts of tangible property such as art.
The Montclair Foundation owns and maintains Van Vleck House & Gardens. We do not receive financial support from the township of Montclair. Among the sources of funding used to maintain Van Vleck House & Gardens is our Green Acres Fund, which also accepts donations, grants, gifts, etc.
Here are your opportunities to support the community:
- Direct Donation

These opportunities provide for the peace and tranquility of this extraordinary property and furnish the non-profit community with the ability to thrive.
