Establish a Fund to Support Causes You Care About

Perhaps you have one, or two, or several causes that you feel passionate about and want to financially support. Maybe you have the desire to help kids get to college. You want to invest in these needs now, and you want to make sure the giving can continue long past your lifetime. One way to accomplish those goals is through a donor-advised fund that really allows you to create a foundation without the work. Your giving here grows. Establishing a fund provides an opportunity for you to give directly to organizations that are working on the causes you care about most, or provide financial assistance to students that need help getting to college – forever.


Our goal is to fulfill your dreams. We set up a private consultation and work with you one on one to determine the type of fund that is best for you. Learn more about how our funds work and donor advised funds.


Give Through Your Will

Robert Lucas was an educator who cared deeply for his home. Today, his fund distributes grants to child serving agencies in our community, while the balance of the fund continues to grow far beyond the original gift and allows the giving to continue, forever.


Leaving a portion of your estate to your community foundation is one of the greatest ways you can impact your community long past your lifetime. We work directly with Professional Advisors to help you leave a legacy that can make a difference for generations to come.


Give in Memory

One of the lasting ways to remember a loved one is to establish a fund in their memory. Memorial gifts are collected on the behalf of the family and we work with the family to determine how best to honor your loved one. This can mean establishing a fund in their name, or simply giving to one or more of their favorite charitable causes.


The first place our donors often turn when thinking about philanthropy is their trusted advisor. Learn more about how we can help identify the best solution for you or your client.
