Impact today while saving for tomorrow.
Type 1: The Community Foundation Now & Forever Fund
Each year, nonprofit community leaders and representatives from the Now & Forever Fund will choose a charitable focus area; whatever the group feels is the most pressing need that year.
There will be needs in the future that cannot be imagined today.
Requests for proposals will be sent to local nonprofit organizations addressing that need. Once the proposals are received, the committee will determine the specific recipient(s) and 50% of the annual donations to the Fund will be granted.
The other 50% will become a part of the Foundation’s permanent Now & Forever Fund. Income from this fund will be distributed to meet pressing needs or combined with the above to increase the impact.

Type 2: A Donor-Advised Now & Forever Fund
This type of fund allows you to improve the lives of others immediately while simultaneously creating a permanent source of support.
A Now & Forever Fund may be established with a minimum $10,000 contribution that can be grown over 3 years.
Once you meet the minimum contribution, you can continue to add any amount to the fund at anytime, receiving tax benefits with each new gift.
