How to Make an Impact
We can establish a fund in your name, the name of your family or business, or in honor of any person or organization you choose. There are many types of funds available and we can help you choose the right one. If you choose an endowed fund, your gift—and all future earnings — will support the causes you care about most, forever.
Based on the type of fund you choose to establish, you can be involved in the work your gift supports. You can make a charitable recommendation or rely on the experienced staff at the Community Foundation to determine the areas of greatest need in our community. With Board approval, the Community Foundation will issue grants in the name of the fund you establish. The best part? We handle all the administrative details.
There are many options available when considering your charitable giving. We can work with you to design solutions for your philanthropic goals. You can make a gift now or leave the Community Foundation in your will or living trust. We accept a variety of gifts. You can give to an existing fund or start your own fund.
