During and after your lifetime you want your charitable giving to accomplish the most for the county's quality of life, and you recognize that needs can change. Further, you believe that a group of living men and women will always be better able to assess current needs than any written document from the past, regardless of how thoughtful.
You can establish a named fund as an unrestricted fund during your lifetime or by will. All grants made from your fund can be in your name-or the fund's name-year after year. The responsibility for selecting the most appropriate grantees rests with the foundation's dedicated Grants Committee and Board of Trustees. An Unrestricted Fund such as this provides the most flexible way for the Foundation to respond to changing community needs.
