Start a New Fund

Making youR charitable dreams into a reality is as easy as 1–2–3!


  1. Think about the charitable causes that are important to you. The Community Foundation of Greater Rochester supports a broad range of charitable needs so if you have an idea, let’s talk about it.
  2. Review our Types of Funds. It only takes an opening gift of $10,000 to start a fund ($20,000 for a scholarship fund).
  3. Call us at 248-608-2804 and let’s start a conversation about when and what you want to give. We will draft a fund agreement that includes your charitable goals and the Foundation’s policies. Once the agreement is signed and the gift completed, your fund is established.

"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away."

Pablo Picasso
