Field of Interest
Field of interest funds may be used by donors to channel their resources into a broad area of concern such as health care, youth services, education, the arts, recreation, etc. The Foundation will then make grants from the earned income to programs or organizations in the field specified.
A donor with a highly focused charitable interest may create a fund which is dedicated exclusively to a specific organization or purpose. The Foundation assumes oversight responsibility for ensuring that the income from the fund is distributed as the donor intends.
In this type of fund the donor retains the privilege of periodically suggesting a specific organization, purpose, or field of interest to receive income from the Fund
Make a Planned Gift
Become a Future Builder...
To establish a Future Builders Fund, donors advise the Foundation in writing of their decision to make a planned gift – either through a will or as beneficiary of an insurance policy - to the Foundation upon their demise. Gifts can be designated for a specific purpose or for the Foundation’s Fund for Public Giving.
