Donor Advised Funds

A Donor Advised Fund is for those who would like to establish a fund with the Battle Creek Community Foundation and want to make suggestions from time to time on distributions from the fund. Through a Donor Advised Fund, you can have an active hand in your charitable giving, as well as suggest which organizations should be supported, such as your high school or college, church, or other favorite charity. Many donors send out several donations throughout the year to different charities of their choice. Having a Donor Advised Fund takes the burden off the donor, as the Community Foundation does all the work in getting the grants sent out to the charities that the donor suggests. This type of fund is a great way to stay involved in the use of your gift!
