Support the causes you care about

We all have passions and interests. A Designated Fund allows you to support the charitable organizations you care about so that they can fulfill their mission today and into the future.

Perhaps you are passionate about ensuring your neighbors receive nutritious meals, children have space for play, or animals are cared for. It’s up to you. The gift you give will allow the organization to continue their mission and better serve the community.

Your favorite organizations will not only benefit from your gift but also from Galesburg Community Foundation’s expertise in managing endowment funds, handling administrative details, and providing stewardship for your investment. This allows organizations to continue focusing on fulfilling their mission.

Designated Funds at work

What are the benefits?

Personal. Designated Funds can be in honor or memory of a loved one and are a great way to honor your family.

Enduring. Your gift will make a continual impact on the charity of your choice, allowing the benefiting organization to continue its mission and better contribute to the community.

Flexible. Donors can add to the fund at any time. The Community Foundation can accept donations of almost any asset including cash, stocks, and real estate.

Efficient. Donors and organizations both benefit as the Community Foundation handles the administrative details.
