Field of Interest Funds

This type of fund may be named for an individual, such as a memorial to a loved one, or for a specific purpose such as think tanks or library services. Grants are disbursed in accordance with the priorities of the Foundation within the specific field of interest [to learn more about our ‘Fields of Interest’, click HERE] agreed upon by both parties at time of the establishment of the fund.

A minimum donation of $25,000 is required to establish such a fund. Field-of-Interest Funds can be grown over the years by further donation (though any member of the public) along with contributions from other family members.
