Create a Fund

You can create your fund now, establish it in your will, or create it through a trust arrangement that benefits your family as well as charity. Tax deductions are earned at the time of your gift, while grants awarded from your fund will continue into the future.

Funds can be established with cash, marketable securities, real estate, a lead trust, closely held stock, retirement plan assets, or by transferring an existing private foundation. Future gifts may be funded via a gift annuity, a charitable remainder trust, a life insurance policy, will bequest or living trust.
