While we work with you, we help you consider these ingredients to create your own personal fund. We consider a fund to be fully “endowed” as soon as it reaches US$10,000 ($25,000 for a scholarship fund). However, many of our philanthropists are creating a new fund by creating an acorn fund built over five years at the well level. An initial gift of $2,000 or more is needed to “sow” one of our means. And granting can start as soon as your acorn fund is equipped with our “Pass Through” grant system. Visit our library and documents page for model fund agreements. How do you call your fund?

While there is absolutely no need for it, Community Foundation staff often work with your professional consultants to strike a Shell deal.
