A Donor-Advised Endowed Fund is a fund for now and the future; donors recommend grants from the interest earnings of the fund. Such funds tend to grow over time and benefit the community in perpetuity. Donor-Advised Endowed Fund Agreement Template.
A Donor-Advised Gift
Fund accommodates more active givers. Once a Gift
Fund is established, the donor may recommend grants
from the principal of the fund and may in fact spend
it down to zero. The Gift Fund is the perfect option
for the donor who wants to make one tax-deductible gift
now and focus on the specifics - with the help of our
staff, if requested - at a later date.

The Donor-Advised Impact Fund offers a unique alternative. Like an Endowed Fund the Impact Fund is invested in The Community Foundation's investment pool allowing the principal to grow over time. Donors may request that up to 20% of the fund be granted each year–increasing grant amounts to organizations the donors wish to immediately help. Donor-Advised Impact Fund Agreement Template.
Endowment is a long term fund held and managed by
