Helping sustain and grow local organizations.
Establishing a Designated Fund allows you to support the good work of a specific nonprofit organization. Because it’s given through your community foundation, your gift provides the organization you select not only funding, but planned giving and investment management services and the power of endowment.
A Designated Fund provides you a wonderful way to give back to one or more specific organizations that have touched your life. Your gift provides more than just funding—your favorite organization will benefit from your community foundation’s investment stewardship and ability to manage endowment funds. Because your community foundation handles the details, the nonprofit organization’s staff is freed up to focus on its mission. And, the community foundation can facilitate even the most complex forms of giving, such as planned gifts or gifts of appreciated stock or real estate.
You can add to the fund at any time. If the organization you select ceases to exist or changes in mission, the fund can be redirected so that it continues to address your charitable intent.
