How to Start a Fund
The Cortes Island Community Foundation can work with you to develop a Donor Advised Fund (where you, a partners, or the CICF direct the granting of the proceeds), a Charitable Endowed Fund (which is invested and proceeds granted out to support a specific Cortes charity), or to create a Program Fund in support of a specific cause (such as food resiliency, High School education for islanders, or equity).
What to Consider
Starting a Fund requires an initial gift of $1,000 to $20,000 and there are a number of options for helping get you there. It all starts with a conversation to assess your wishes and strategize options.
