Home Donors How to Open a Fund Establish a Fund

Establishing a Fund is as Simple as 1 – 2 – 3

1.  Clarify Your Charitable Intent  

Most donors begin by working with us to clarify their charitable intent. We can help you find the causes and organizations in our community that resonate with you. No matter what your philanthropic goals are, we will work with you to find a path forward.  

2. Identify Your Giving Strategy 

Once you’ve established your philanthropic goals, we can help create the giving strategy to accomplish them. We can accept almost any type of asset, and you can establish a fund with gifts of $10,000 or more. We also have a Prairie Fund option, which allows you to open a fund with a minimum gift of $2,500 to build your fund over time. 

3. Establish a Fund 

We offer a wide range of funds, and we can help you find the one that fits your giving goals and strategy. You can establish a fund in your name, the name of your family or business, or in honor of any person or organization you choose.
