Individuals, families and organizations establish charitable funds with us to give back to the community in ways that help others today and for future generations. It’s easy to start a fund to reflect your own charitable interests with a gift of cash, stock, real estate or almost any asset. Or donate to an existing fund that supports something you’re passionate about.
Donors invest as little as $500 up front, and add tax-deductible contributions of at least $250 each year thereafter. When the acorn fund reaches $10,000 in gifts and interest, it matures into a permanent endowment fund.
