Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds represent a unique opportunity to participate in the grant-making process. Funds can be opened with a minimum gift of $2,500 and can be named for the donor, the donor’s family or as a memorial to a loved one. Donors recommend grants ($100 or more) to the charities of their choice. Family members can be named to succeed the original donor as advisors to the fund in perpetuity. The Foundation currently manages over $5,500,000 in Donor Advised Funds.
