Donor Fund Management.svg

Foundation Funds

The individual funds created by our donors are the heart and soul of the Community Foundation. We invest the initial contribution and use the earnings to support the donor’s goal. Preserving the principal creates funds with a long life.  
The funds benefit a variety of causes and are a place where individuals can design funds that target their interests.  Often “Legacy Funds” are established where  families and friends can create a lasting tribute to a deceased loved one
to support a specific church, issue, scholarship, or even to support a named nonprofit organization.  In many situations, individuals will name the Foundation in their estate planning so they may guarantee that certain things they feel strongly about have support.  Nonprofit organizations and individuals establish funds in order so their contributions are tax deductible and professionally managed.  A review of our list of funds is the best example of the wide variety of types of funds that can be established.
