Community Foundations – working in partnership with local charities and causes

Community Foundations can assist local charities and causes by setting up ‘special interest funds’, or a specific fund for a specific cause. This has the following key benefits:

  • Investment expertise
  • Marketing expertise
  • A focus on talking to donors and growing the fund
  • A focus on future, sustainable funding by an endowment fund model

Further, taking the cause-related endowment fund off a charity’s balance sheet, and holding it with the local Community Foundation, can be of assistance when a charity applies for other grant funding.

As example, take a look at some of the special interest funds currently being managed by some local Community Foundations:
