Donor Advised Funds

offer you active participation by allowing you or your appointed advisers to recommend charitable organizations to benefit from your fund. You receive immediate tax benefits and can advise on grants for non-profits you want to support over time.

Designated Funds

allow you to identify a specific or multiple non-profit organization(s) to receive support from your fund. Should that organization ever cease to exist or should its mission no longer agree with your interest, CFSKY will redirect the grant distributions to organizations with similar purposes.

Scholarship Funds

allow you to identify a specific provide deserving students with financial support for education they might not otherwise receive. Scholarships are designed with your specific interests in mind—you can help define the guidelines for candidate selection and award use.

Agency Endowment Funds

are established by non-profit organizations as a means of protecting charitable dollars for the future. A non-profit, whether large or small, can better spend its time pursuing its mission and fundraising, while leaving the management and investment of the fund to CFSKY.

Field of Interest Funds

allow you to support a broad area you care about most, such as health care, education, arts, the environment or any other host of areas that interest you. You specify the field and rely on CFSKY to identify local organizations that will make the greatest impact and meet the most pressing needs within your field.

Unrestricted Funds

give you the opportunity to identify and respond to emerging and changing community needs. You place no restrictions on how your contribution is to be used, leaving those decisions to CFSKY.

Operating Funds

are established to support and sustain the core operations of CFSKY and help it further its mission.

Deferred Gifts

include bequests, pooled income funds, life estates, charitable lead trusts or charitable remainder trusts—all of which CFSKY can help you establish in partnership with your estate planning attorney, CPA or financial adviser.
