Established Funds by Area of Interest
Individuals, businesses and organizations can achieve their charitable goals through giving to permanent endowment funds. The income from these funds is used to strategically award grants that address emerging and evolving needs in our community. Gifts are pooled and professionally managed. Resources grow through economies of scale and a highly diversified investment strategy that increase their charitable impact.
You can establish your own fund, either during your lifetime or through an estate plan, with as little as $10,000. The fund can be in your name, or in the name of your family, your organization, or someone you wish to honor. Your fund will receive recognition for all grants awarded from it to charitable organizations.
