Funds

Miami County Community Foundation works with donors to create the kind of fund that best reflects their charitable dreams, as well as optimizes their tax benefits. Donors often remark at how easy it is to create a fund.

There are lots of vehicles to fulfill your charitable goals. However, when a donor works with the Community Foundation to create a fund—they aren't helping an investment firm with their bottom line. They are helping all of Miami County. This is because the Community Foundation works to support the entire community—not just itself.

People of all means can leave a lasting impact on the community because the Community Foundation invests all gifts, regardless of size so they continue to grow…and our communities reap the benefits. We make it simple for your gift to grow, whether you wish to contribute to an existing fund or if you want to create your own.
