Creating A Fund Is Simple
Creating a fund at the Community Foundation of Central Georgia is simple. Here is what you do to get started:
- Reach out to CFCG staff to determine the best type of fund to accomplish your individualized charitable goals.
- Consult with your professional advisor — CPA, Estate Planning Attorney or Financial Advisor — on the best asset to give as a charitable gift to establish your fund.
- Decide on the name of your fund, and work with CFCG staff to complete a short fund agreement.
