With a Designated Fund, your philanthropy can make a focused and long-term difference.
A designated fund allows a donor to provide an ongoing, reliable and permanent stream of support for a particular nonprofit or community cause. Rose Community Foundation staff will monitor the fund to ensure it continues to honor your philanthropic intent now and for generations to come.
While a designated fund must have a stated charitable focus, it is a flexible tool in that it can be used to support project costs or operational expenses as well as grants to nonprofit organizations.
