The Community Foundation holds a variety of funds that make grant distributions to a range of charitable agencies and programs. Annual grant distributions are made from investment income earned on permanently endowed funds. Grants are also made from unrestricted funds through an application process; funds where donors have directed a specific charitable field or purpose; and funds where donors are allowed to submit recommendations for distributions.
