At the Community Foundation of the Brazos Valley, we believe that anyone can be a philanthropist. All you need is a desire to make your community a better place.
Many people choose to establish a fund to help support their favorite charitable interests, others opt to support Unrestricted Funds allowing the CFBV to identify needs and opportunities in the community and target your dollars where they will be most effective through competitive grants.
From small gifts to large ones, there is a way for everyone to participate in building our community through philanthropy. No matter which option you select, you’ll know that your dollars are at work where you want them to be.
How does it work?
Assets that you donate to the Foundation create one of several types of funds to support your charitable goals. We offer you a full menu of giving options to tailor your gift. Create a fund in honor of someone you love or to celebrate a special event. Direct your gift broadly or narrowly to specific issues that matter to you or to wherever the needs are greatest. You can create a fund today and experience the impact your charitable giving will have on the community or make a long-lasting gift by creating a fund through your will.
If you prefer to create your own charitable fund, you can do it with as little as $5,000
- You can provide ongoing support to your favorite organization or area of interest
- You can choose different nonprofit organizations to support each year
- You can make your own choices, or take advantage of our staff's expertise to help you address the community's most pressing challenges
- You have the opportunity to distribute gifts during your lifetime or to leave a lasting legacy through an endowment fund - or both.
We are here to help you with all aspects of your giving experience. If you have questions about becoming a donor that have not been answered in this section, please click here to contact us for more information.
