When you become a Sutter Creek Community Benefit Foundation donor, you have the flexibility to create and shape your own charitable fund to reflect your personal goals and desires. Review our various fund categories and consider our various options. We offer many different types, each customized to help you make the most of your giving.
Donor Advised Fund
A donor advised fundis our most flexible fund. With this type of fund, you consolidate all of your charitable giving into one invested vehicle. Once the fund is established it allows an individual, family, or business to contribute assets to a fund at any time and then recommend grants to support qualified nonprofit agencies or organizations at any time in the future. They are a flexible, personalized way to support organizations and their programs. Donor Advised Funds are the best alternative to the creation of an expensive, cumbersome, restrictive Private Foundation
With a Sutter Creek Community Benefit Foundation designated fund, you can support one or more specific organizations or projects that have touched your life. Endowing the designated fund establishes a long term funding source for a particular organization or project. Your gift provides funding as well as the stability that comes with ongoing support and investment stewardship.
Because we handle the details, the nonprofit organization’s staff can focus on mission. And, the Community Foundation can facilitate gifts of appreciated stock, real estate or planned gifts. You can add to the fund at any time. If the organization you select ceases to exist or changes in mission, the fund will be redirected so that it continues to support your charitable wishes.
Field of Interest Fund
A field of interest fund gives you the opportunity to target your contribution to one or more fields of interest that you care most about such as historic preservation, education, cultural heritage, etc. These funds are broad in scope, yet targeted so as to meet the needs of our community. Our experienced and knowledgeable board will use their expertise to identify, evaluate, and award grants to the most qualified and deserving organizations and projects in your area of interest. You can add any amount to the field of interest fund you establish at any time and so can others who share your interests in community.
When you establish an unrestricted fund with Sutter Creek Community Benefit Foundation, your gift can address a broad range of local needs, including future needs that often cannot be anticipated at the time your gift is made. The flexibility of your unrestricted gift allows us to respond to the community’s most pressing needs, today and tomorrow.
