Designated Fund

A Designated Fund allows you to name one or more nonprofits you wish to permanently support.

It is an effective way to perpetually give to an organization that matters to you.

A Designated Fund could support an organization for which you’ve been a volunteer, a board member or a long-time annual supporter.

This type of fund also can help an effective nonprofit that is relatively new to achieve the next level of its growth as it becomes a respected community institution.

If one day the nonprofit goes out of business, the fund will be redirected to support a similar organization, so that your intent is always fulfilled.
