Create Your Own Fund
The Community Foundation offers customizable funds to suit every charitable need.
Donor Advised Funds are flexible, while designated funds carry out your wishes into the future even if you’re not here to implement them yourself. Community grantmaking funds pursue proven strategies to improve the community we share. Read about these and other fund types below (or email Marcia Shackelford for a copy of our Donor Handbook), or call us at 609.219.1800 for help choosing the fund that best meets your goals.
Any of these funds can be endowed, allowing you to give in perpetuity.
Name the fund whatever you wish. Many carry a family name, while others are anonymous.
As a fundholder, you’ll have access to exclusive educational events so you can learn more about best practices in giving. You can also take advantage of our family resources, which help you pass on your values to children or grandkids.
