Field of Interest Fund
Support Your Passion.
What is a Field of Interest Fund?
Field of interest endowment funds are established by donors who wish to provide support for a specific charitable area or purpose. The Community Foundation then makes grants to the most appropriate and effective organizations within that area of interest whether it is the elderly, children, education, healthcare, the arts, or even a particular geographic area.
