Five Simple Reasons to Establish Your Community Foundation Fund:
- It’s Easy
Establish your fund in minutes by completing a Fund Agreement. We'll guide you through the process. Accomplishing your charitable objectives is made simple by our expert and professional management of your fund. Giving should warm your heart, not burden you with tax complications and ongoing administrative details.
- It’s Flexible
We customize our services to meet your charitable objectives. You may establish a fund that supports charitable organizations or programs you care about, the community's greatest areas of need or a broad field of interest. You may also contribute to an existing fund or make a gift to an Unrestricted Fund.
- It’s Effective
We are dedicated to ensuring that your charitable giving is as effective as possible. Your fund will share the expertise of a knowledgeable staff, enjoy excellent financial management and benefit from a closely monitored, long-term investment strategy.
Satisfaction comes from knowing that your contributions create positive change. We know you consider your charitable gifts to be an investment – in your community, your church, your alma mater, educating future generations or whatever causes you select. Tap into the expertise of our staff members to assess the effectiveness of a grant, research a giving option or discuss opportunities.
- It’s Permanent
An important part of our work is building a permanent collection of funds for our community. Our Board of Trustees ensures funds will grow in perpetuity and will continue to carry out the charitable objectives of the donors who established them.
