field of interest funds

Field of Interest Funds allow donors to target gifts that address a specific area of community life. The arts, at-risk youth, education and the environment are just a few examples. Donors can identify their personal interest area when making contributions and the fund steering committee and community foundation board will award grants to community organizations and programs that are making a difference in the selected area of interest. Field of Interest Funds ensure that gifts remain flexible enough to meet community needs in the interest area, even as they change over time.
