Donor Advised Funds
Nonprofit Endowment Funds
Nonprofit endowment funds can be established by a nonprofit organization or by a donor who wishes to provide long-term support of a nonprofit’s mission. Nonprofit endowments generate an income stream to sustainably support programs and operations. The Community Foundation holds and invests the assets, providing responsible and professional fund management and administrative support, allowing the nonprofit to focus on their mission.
Other Funds - Designated / Granting / Endowed
The Community Foundation works with donors and organizations to meet their charitable giving goals and can suggest a fund designed to fulfill your objectives. A designated fund supports one or more beneficiary organizations in accordance with instructions specified at the time of the gift. A granting fund uses a competitive application process to distribute awards based on pre-determined criteria fulfilling the charitable mission of the fund. Funds can be endowed, creating a long-term income stream, or non-endowed. We invite you to contact YVCF to discuss how we can help you realize your charitable interests.
Every day we meet with partners, new and longstanding, to pass on our passion to build a better Yampa Valley. If you have a passion, we can help you find the best way to pass it on.
