The broadest giving option, allowing grants to be made to wherever our professional staff determines our community’s needs are the greatest.
Field of Interest Fund
Allows donors to direct the fund to specific areas of need that have special meaning to the donor, such as children’s programs, arts, education, the environment, or aiding the homeless.
Helps students pursue academic goals, including high school students going on to post-secondary education or adult learners going back to school. Donors may define guidelines for candidacy, the advisory committee, the school and the award itself.
Provides perpetual support to specific charities that donors care about the most.
Agency Endowment Fund
Established by nonprofit organizations to serve as everlasting endowments.
Agency Flex Fund
Established by nonprofit organizations to serve as a non-endowed fund, meaning both the principal and the earnings are available for use by your agency. This makes it ideal for operating or building capital reserves.
