What do you mean by an endowed fund?
An endowed fund is a permanent charitable account in which the principal is retained and invested in the market for growth to allow for grantmaking over time.
Why Would I Create a Fund?
Creating your own fund gives you a simple, powerful, and highly personal tool for charitable giving. We welcome all sizes and types of gifts to develop a group of donors who want to establish long-term charitable funds using the most tax-advantaged methods to benefit their causes and the community.Create A Fund
I already support the charities I care about. Why should I support or create funds at the Community Foundation?
We are glad you support organizations you love, and we hope you will continue to do so. Creating a fund at the Community Foundation is not a substitute for directly supporting the causes and organizations that are important to you. It is a way to grow the impact of your charitable giving and sustain it beyond your lifetime.
