Charitable Fund Options 2022-06-08T15:36:11+00:00

Types of Funds

The Community Foundation helps individuals, families, nonprofits, and businesses achieve their philanthropic goals. Setting up a named charitable fund is easy and can be completed in less than a day. Whatever your giving goals might be, the Community Foundation can create a fund to help you make the most of your philanthropy.
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.

Your gift will address ever-changing community needs ‒ including future needs that often cannot be anticipated when your gift is made. We evaluate all aspects of community well-being ‒ arts and culture, economic development, education, environment, health and human services, neighborhood revitalization, and more. The flexibility of your unrestricted gift enables the Community Foundation’s program experts to respond to the community’s most pressing needs, today and tomorrow.
