At The Community Foundation, we offer you the ability to establish a variety of different funds to meet your charitable goals. Many donors choose to set up a Donor-advised Fund to actively participate in grantmaking. Donor-advised funds offer an immediate tax benefit while also allowing you the time to learn about issues and then make gift recommendations when you’re ready. Others choose to make an unrestricted gift to our Common Good Funds that can benefit the community more broadly. Likewise, for donors that wish to support one or more named charities perpetually, we offer Designated Funds. We also offer Scholarship Fund options. For more complex philanthropic plans, The Community Foundation provides services to Supporting Organizations and Private Foundations.
A donor-advised fund is The Community Foundation's most popular and flexible giving vehicle. It allows you to donate now to The Community Foundation and recommend grants to specific nonprofits at a later time.Read More
