Establish a Fund

What is your passion?  What would you like to do to change Richmond and Central Virginia for the better?

Creating a named charitable fund at The Community Foundation is not complicated and it does not require great wealth.  (In fact, you can start a fund with as little as $10,000.)  You can provide ongoing support to your favorite charities or you can recommend grants to different charities at your convenience. You can make your own choices or you can consult with our staff to identify the community’s most pressing needs.  You can give today or leave your legacy through planned gifts. Whatever your philanthropic objectives, TCF has the tools and resources to help you organize your giving so it is strategic, flexible and effective.

We are here to help with all aspects of your charitable giving.  If you have any questions that are not answered in this section, please Contact Us.  We look forward to assisting you.
