I am a ‘horizontal’ as opposed to a ‘vertical’ person, meaning I have a wide variety of interests and passions as opposed to depth in one or two areas of need. Because of my broad base of interest, philanthropy was becoming a complicated, tedious, and solo effort. Setting up my Donor Advised Fund with the Community Foundation serving Southwest Colorado simplified the process. I am able to deliberately establish a giving pattern that will continue on after I am no longer able to make philanthropic decisions.

- Kathleen Adams, Board Member

I am extremely proud to be a Fund Holder, as well as President of the Board of Directors for this outstanding organization. It has elevated philanthropy in our community by pairing the needs of the nonprofits with those who have a passion to fund their mission. The Foundation is an important engine to our community’s health.
