Fundholder Portal Frequently Asked Questions 

Below are frequently asked questions by fund type. For additional assistance, please contact Linette Hidalgo, donor services and database associate, at lhidalgo@rcfdenver.org or 303.398.7459.

  • Donor-Advised Funds

      • If I have more than one fund, how do I toggle between them in the Fundholder Portal?  On the Choose Fund tab, you can select the fund for which you would like to view information.
      • How do I view my recent grant history?  The Home tab features a list of recent grants by date, as well as contributions to your fund. You will also see a list of your paid grants on the right side of the Make a Grant or Distribution page (or at the bottom of the page on a mobile device). The Grants and Distributions tab summarizes all grant history by grantee.
      • How do I make a grant from my donor-advised fund?  Click on the Make a Grant or Distribution tab. From there you can select a previous grantee from the drop-down menu, use the search box to search for a grantee (all current and past grantees of Rose Community Foundation and its funds will appear) or manually enter information for a new grantee organization.
      • What is the Attachment field on the Make a Grant or Distribution tab for? Do I need to provide accompanying documentation for my grant request?  The attachment field is optional and may be used if you have additional information you wish to share with Rose Community Foundation. Additional documentation is not required.
      • What information should I include in the Description field?  You may use this field to indicate whether your grant is unrestricted or designated to a specific fund or program at the grantee organization.
      • What should be included in the Special Instructions field?  This field may be used to state if the gift is being made in honor or in memory of a person. Other relevant notes explaining how the grant should be applied may be entered here as well.
      • Can I make my grant anonymous?  Yes, checking the Anonymous box when completing your grant request will make both the fund name and donor name anonymous. The grant letter that accompanies the grant check will state that an anonymous donor-advised fund at Rose Community Foundation has made a grant in support of the organization. If you do not check this box, the grant letter will recognize both the fund and recommending donor advisor.
      • What if I want only my name or fund name to be anonymous, not both?  Currently the anonymous selection will make both the donor advisor and fund name anonymous. If this functionality is updated, we will notify you. If you have questions, please contact Linette Hidalgo.
      • How do I make a grant to a fund at Rose Community Foundation?  You may make an interfund grant to another fund at the Foundation using the dropdown menu “Other foundation funds” on the Make a Grant or Distribution tab.
      • Will I receive an email confirmation when the Foundation receives my grant request?  You will not receive confirmation by email, but a confirmation message will display after you click Submit Request. The grant request is immediately received.
      • Will I receive notification when the grant has been paid?  Yes, you will receive an email notification when the grant has been paid.
  • Designated or Endowed Funds 

      • How do I view my recent distribution history?  The Home tab and the Grants and Distributions tab both list recent distributions by date. The Grants and Distributions tab summarizes all distribution history.
      • How do I request a distribution from my Endowed or Designated Fund? Designated Funds currently have the ability to request distributions through the portal. Endowed funds will have access to this functionality beginning in 2021. Click the Make a Grant or Distribution tab. Enter your organization name in the search box. Select your organization. Enter the distribution amount and attach the signed Distribution Authorization Form. This form can be found under the Documents tab.
      • Where can I see the amount available to distribute from my fund?  Beginning in January 2021, you will be able to see your Spendable Balance on the Home tab. This will reflect the amount available for distribution.
