Your gift can address ever-changing community needs, including future needs that often cannot be anticipated at the time your gift is made. We evaluate all aspects of community well-being: arts and culture, economic development, education, recreation, health and human services, and more. The flexibility of your unrestricted gift enables the Community Foundation of Chippewa County grants committee and board to respond to the community's most pressing needs -- today and tomorrow.
Target your gift to address needs in an important area of community life. Areas may include cultural arts, education, environment, health and human services, youth and senior programming, or animal welfare. You identify the cause you want to support when making your gift. The CFCC board awards grants to community organization and programs that are making a difference in the area that reflects your wishes.
Direct your gift to one or more nonprofit organizations in our area. Your fund will help provide ongoing funding for the organizations you designate.
You can have ongoing involvement in the use of your gift. Our professional staff will help you identify ways to use dollars from your fund to address the issues and needs you care about the most. Your recommendations are submitted to the CFCC board for approval; we then distribute grant dollars.
Establish a seedling fund with a gift of 20 percent of the minimum required for any of the permanent endowment fund. You determine the type of fund and support the organization or purpose you care most about. Once fully endowed, your funds will grant back into the community.
We will work with you, and if appropriate, your professional advisor, to customize a charitable plan that is right for you.
