creating a fund
Creating a fund with the Community Foundation is an efficient way to manage your charitable giving. It’s also easy!
Funds may be created with assets that include cash, stock, real estate, life insurance, or personal property. Your fund may be named for you, your family or business or in honor of any person or organization you choose. You receive tax benefits in the year your gift is made. You recommend uses for the fund, supporting the causes and organizations you care about most. Your recommendations are presented to the Community Foundation board for approval. The Community Foundation handles all the administrative details and, in accordance with our investment policy, issues grants to charities in the name of the fund you establish. If you prefer, grants can be made anonymously.
Your gift can be placed into an endowment that is invested over time. Earnings from your fund are used to make grants addressing community needs. Your gift---and all future earnings from your gift---is a permanent source of community capital.
