Endowed Designated Funds

A Designated Fund is a permanent fund designed to benefit one or more specific organizations that you select. This is a wonderful way to provide a permanent source of support for your favorite nonprofits or house of worship, helping them achieve long-term sustainability and allowing your legacy to be forever connected.

Grants are made annually to the recipient organizations from the “spendable” portion of Designated Funds.

For a limited time, you or a group of supporters, can make a new permanent gift of $10,000 or more for your favorite nonprofit or house of worship, and we will provide a 10% match. More info...
