Invest in Your Community Through a Field of Interest Fund.

Field of Interest Funds allow our donors to target their gift to focus on one area of our community that drives their personal passion.  For some donors, it will be the cultural arts.  For others, health and wellness.  The interests can be as diverse as our donors ranging from downtown revitalization to early childhood education to at-risk youth.  Once you choose your area of focus, our Board of Trustees will research the community organizations and programs who are devoted to making a difference in your area of choice and provide grants and funding to those organizations and agencies who are making a positive impact and demonstrating successful outcomes related to your selected area.
