Choose the charitable fund option that is right for you.
Fund options are tailored to you and what you wish to accomplish. Some donors prefer to support the broad, ever-changing needs of the community. Others wish to have more hands-on involvement in grantmaking. And there are options in-between. All funds provide the opportunity to create a lasting legacy that carries on your name or the name of a loved one.
Field of Interest Funds
You can target your gift to address needs in an important area of community life that is most important to you: arts, environment, youth or aging, etc. You identify your area of interest when making your gift. Our program staff monitors the needs of the community and awards grants to charitable causes that are making a difference in the area you select.
Nonprofit Agency Funds
Establishing a Nonprofit Agency Fund with us is a simple and efficient way to create a source of permanent capital for your organization’s future. These funds offer a reliable, ongoing source of financial support.
You can use your gift to help students achieve their educational goals, all with the guidance and personal services of the Community Foundation. You work with our staff to determine the criteria students must meet to receive the scholarship you establish. We handle applications and process scholarship awards.
Fiscal Sponsorship Funds
We enable you to begin accepting tax-deductible contributions to further your cause while either working towards securing your own 501(c)(3) nonprofit status or testing the viability of a short-term community project for possible long-term implementation.
