Endowed Donor Advised Funds

Endowed Donor Advised Funds

Endowed donor-advised funds allow you to support the causes and organizations you care about. Once a fund is established using cash, stock, or other assets, you may recommend grants to the nonprofit organizations of your choice without geographic restrictions.  The grants will be made in the name of the fund or, if you choose, anonymously.  Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation ensures that grant recipients meet accepted criteria for being charitable organzations and are able to fulfill your expectations for the use of the grants.
Highlights:

  • You and your family can recommend grants to your favorite charities and add to the fund at anytime. Future generations can be designated to advise grants from the fund.
  • You can choose to partner with the Foundation to fund competitive community grants through Grantmaking Partners.
  • TTCF keeps track of donations, provides timely gift acknowledgements, and utilizes professional money managers for the assets.  Quarterly statements show all activity in the fund, including grants from the fund and gifts to the fund.
  • You can recommend grants online, by mail, or by fax.
