Start a Fund

You can invest in Pulaski County's future through a permanent endowment in the Community Foundation and create a legacy for yourself, your family, your community that will make a lasting difference. 


Pictured to the right are Bill and Peach Roth.  They created the William R. and Patricia J. Roth "We Care" Fund and the Pulaski Animal Center Endowment Fund because they care about the needs of the community and their love for animals. 


A fund agreement is the document that describes your charitable wishes. This document will be used by the Community Foundation in the future to ensure that distributions from the fund are made in a manner consistent with your charitable intent. This agreement specifies the name and purpose of the fund, and who will have ability to recommend distributions (in the case of advised funds).


As a fund donor, you: 


Decide when to give - now, through your will, or in a trust arrangement. 

Decide what to give - almost any type of asset can be used such as cash, stock, real estate, life insurance. 

Choose a name for your fund - many are named for the donor or as a memorial. 

Choose a type of fund - depending on your charitable interests.
