Community Foundation Funding

Cornerstone

At the Community Foundation serving Southwest Colorado, we have created the Cornerstone Fund. This fund is an unrestricted fund focused on fortifying the Community Foundation operations, as well as channeling resources to address our community’s needs, replenishing funds for our community grants, and assisting our five counties in preparing for the future.

Donor Advised Fund

Our most popular fund is a Donor Advised Fund, which allows you to contribute assets now and later, as well as receive an immediate tax benefit. It then allows you to recommend grants to charitable organizations at any time. We recommend a minimum of $10,000 to start a Donor Advised Fund.

Field of Interest Fund

A Field of Interest Fund is designed for multiple donors who would like their contributions to benefit a particular area of interest, type of organization, community issue, or geographic area. We recommend a minimum of $10,000 to start a Field of Interest Fund.

Scholarship Fund

Scholarship Funds can be used to memorialize a family member or support your personal interest. The fund provides educational opportunities for students attending high school, college, university, or vocational schools. You may designate a field of study and choose the eligibility requirements. We recommend a minimum of $10,000 to start a Scholarship Fund.
