Unrestricted Funds

With an unrestricted fund, your gift can address a broad range of local needs—including future needs that often cannot be anticipated at the time your gift is made. We evaluate all aspects of community well-being such as; arts and culture, economic development, education, environment, health and human services, neighborhood revitalization, and more. Grants are made in the name of the fund you establish, creating your personal legacy of giving. You may give your gift immediately, or through your will or other estate planning strategy.

If you endow your gift, it becomes a permanent community funding resource, and future Community Foundation boards and staff- who have a tradition of excellence to stand on – will make grants in your name in perpetuity that effectively deal with contemporary needs in the community.

To find out if an unrestricted fund is the right charitable giving vehicle for you, please contact us.
