Ways To Give

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for managing charitable giving. That's why we offer a variety of giving options to serve Fund Creators. Establishing funds that honor the wishes of our Fund Creatorsis our specialty. Whether your fund focuses totally on our local community or includes charitable interests throughout the United States, we can build a plan that meets your needs.


We offer Fund Creators four options:


1. Donor Advised Funds

You can have ongoing involvement in the use of your gift and, if desired, work with our grantmaking staff, identifying ways to use dollars from your Donor Advised Fund to address the issues and needs you care about most. Your recommendations are submitted to our Board for approval; we then distribute grant dollars. For more information on this very popular type of fund click on >> Donor Advised Funds


2. Designated Funds

You can direct your gift to a specific charity or purpose. Help provide ongoing funding for a senior center, museum, your church, or virtually any nonprofit charitable organization. You identify the recipient or recipients you wish to benefit through your gift; our staff manages the annual distribution of funds.


3. Field of Interest Funds

You can target your gift to address needs in an important area of community life. The arts. Aging. At-risk youth. You identify your personal interest area when making your gift; our Board awards grants to community agencies and programs that are making a difference in the area you select.


4. Unrestricted Funds

By making a gift to our Community Trust Fund, you allow your gift to be used to meet ever-changing community needs -- including future needs that often cannot be anticipated at the time your gift is made. We evaluate all aspects of community needs -- arts and culture, economic development, education, environment, health, neighborhood revitalization, and more. The flexibility of your unrestricted gift enables our program staff to respond to the community's most pressing needs, today and tomorrow.
