The Community Foundation does the work for you. When you have a fund at The Community Foundation, you receive personal service and knowledge for your contribution. We perform due diligence on each organization and our work with other fundholders and organizations often allows us to identify a need within the community that fits your charitable goals. In addition, with our donor-advised funds, you are giving directly to an organization when you make your own grant recommendations. Your fund is invested with our other Foundation assets which allows your fund to grow and receive the returns of the economies of scale. You are maximizing your potential and the gifts as the fund grows.
