CLICK HERE to read about a donor advised fund, the Edmund J. O'Neal Charitable Fund 

Making an impact has never been easier or more rewarding.  By creating a donor advised fund, you join a community of donors who are actively involved with the Community Foundation's work.  You can make grant recommendations to the specific charitable organizations and causes that matter most to you, and let the Community Foundation handle the details. 

Donor advised funds offer several advantages, including:

  • Grantmaking Expertise - Our expert staff have in-depth knowledge of local charities, and can work with you to develop your charitable giving strategies and goals. And with access to a network of over 700 community foundations nationwide, we can guide your giving outside the Capital Region, too.
  • Professional Financial and Investment Management - Access the benefits of working with the financial and investment staff of a $60 million institution.
  • Tax Advantages - Receive an immediate tax deduction without having to make quick decisions about which charities you want to support.
  • Endowment Opportunities - You can choose to make your donor advised fund permanent, or build it into an endowment over time.
