Your charitable giving should reflect who you are and what you love, turning your passion into purpose.

The CFO works closely with donors to accomplish impactful grantmaking. When you are ready to make a grant, we’re ready to help you. In order to help you make the best use of your fund, we also provide educational programs on local topics and regular communications. We are your resource if you need more information about a nonprofit agency.

Here are some of the benefits of using the CFO to make your charitable giving most effective.

Your personalized fund will enable you to have the greatest possible impact. You decide the size and timing of grants  — no annual distribution required or minimum grant amount.

CFO staff will help you make sure your grants are going to eligible organizations classified by the IRS as 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations, recognized houses of worship, schools and incorporated government entities.

Fund holders are invited to educational events about community issues and opportunities. You will have the chance to engage with those affecting change on the ground level.
