Grant Making Your Way

Donor advised funds make your grant making simple and effective.

  • Direct control of which nonprofits you support
  • Access to professional grant making guidance
  • Recognition or anonymity for your donations
  • Professional management of your investment
  • Minimum contribution: $10,000

As a donor you create a personal named fund with a minimum gift of $10,000, alowing you to make grants from your fund however you choose.

Give to your favorite charity directly through your fund or rely on our staff for recommendations about local agencies making a difference in our community. Either way, donating to the charity you care about most is as easy as picking up the phone or visiting our web site.
