There are several types of charitable funds available to support your giving. Our staff can help you choose the one that best matches your personal approach to giving or set up different types of funds to meet your specific philanthropic goals. Our staff is eager to discuss these options with you.
Donor Advised Funds
A Donor Advised Fund is a popular, flexible, and easy way to support the organizations, causes, groups and issues that you care about, now and in the future. CFBV staff can work with you to identify charitable organizations addressing issues that are important to you. The Foundation ensures the charitable status of beneficiaries and provides additional grant making and administrative support.
Donor Designated Funds
Donor Designated Funds enable you to support one specific organization that you care about deeply with an endowment fund that will last forever.
Scholarship Funds are a wonderful way to give deserving young people the opportunity to continue their education- focusing on students or educational programs that are important to the donor.
Field of Interest Funds
Field of Interest Funds can be established to address one specific area of interest that is important to the donor. You decide the general purpose of the fund, such as education, arts, or health and the Foundation will identify nonprofits that are effectively accomplishing that goal through competitive grants.
Unrestricted Funds offer the broadest options for charitable giving by allowing the Community Foundation to identify needs and opportunities in the community and target your dollars where they will be most effective through competitive grants.
Agency Endowment Funds
Nonprofit organizations and their supporters can establish a permanent Agency Endowment Fund to support a charity in perpetuity.
