Field of Interest Funds

Connecting Personal Values to High-Impact Opportunities

By establishing a Field of Interest Fund, you can target your gift to address needs in an important area of community life.

Arts. Environment. Aging. Homelessness. At-risk youth. You identify your personal interest area when making your gift; our board awards grants to community organizations and programs that are making a difference in the area you select.

Your gift stays flexible enough to meet community needs in your interest area–even as they change over time.
