Field of Interest Fund

You can contribute now to any one of our established Field of Interest Funds, or you can talk to us about establishing a new fund to make charitable grants to support a cause or a geographic area you care about. Write a bequest to create your fund and keep it working for generations… doing just what you want it to do, forever.

Donate Now

Funds enable donors to assist general areas in the community, e.g. arts, health care. Examples of current Community Foundation Field of Interest Funds include the Senior Support Fund, the Be Instrumental Arts Fund, and the Truckee River Fund. These fund’s grants are decided upon by a grant advisory committee. You may choose the Grant Advisory Committee members and must include a Community Foundation staff and a Board member.

Fees

Your fund will be charged an administrative fee ranging between .05% to 1.5% annually of the average daily balance of the fund. The administrative fees will be reduced or adjusted, should the Fund exceed $1 million or other thresholds per the Fee and Fund Policy. Fees are calculated on the daily average fund balance for the most recent month and paid monthly by automatic deduction from the Fund balance.
