Create a Fund

There are so many ways for you to give to your community, and creating a fund is one of the best. When you create a fund at the Community Foundation, you create an investment that will continue to grow and give for generations to come. You can choose which type of fund you would like, which kind of charities it may contribute to, and name the fund. Some donors choose to name their funds in memory of loved ones, some for the causes they believe in most, and others choose to remain anonymous. Whatever you choose, the Community Foundation will be there to help you in your aim to help others.

As a donor, you’ll also receive the benefit of the Community Foundation’s professional grant and gift processing. We maintain an investment program that preserves and enhances the real value of funds, and we provide accurate and timely information about gifts made to our funds. The Community Foundation is here to help you give and to make your gifts meet their maximum potential.
