Your clients may be eligible for an immediate tax deduction when establishing a charitable fund. They may choose from a number of types of charitable funds, most of which can be established for as little as $10,000.

Fund Types Include:

  • Donor Advised – Clients remain actively involved in how their gift is used to help charitable causes.
  • Unrestricted – Your client’s gift ensures that the Community Foundation can address the most urgent needs and most promising opportunities in our region as they evolve.
  • Field of Interest – Your client may support a specific cause that they care about, such as the arts, the environment, youth or the elderly. Such a fund could support a broad range of organizations working to address the cause(s) they care about.
  • Designated – Your client can support a specific organization or group of organizations with a permanent endowment fund.
  • Scholarship – Your client can invest in students and their educational aspirations.
