Our Funds

Established Funds

Some donors prefer to work together to increase the impact of their giving. Whether you are interested in advancing arts and culture, promoting community well-being or protecting the environment, your community foundation can help you realize your philanthropic dream.

You can make a one-time gift or set up a manageable monthly donation to any of our established funds. Because gifts are pooled and invested, every donation, no matter what the size, has lasting impact.
