Funds

  The Greene County Foundation holds 82 funds focused on a variety of Charitable purposes. Funds can be designated to support a specific organization, charitable activity, or scholarship. Unrestricted Community Support Funds address the most immediate community needs and allow the Foundation the ability to make those decisions, while donor advised funds allow the donor to help determine each year how the earnings will be spent.  Donors may have as much or as little involvement with their fund as they wish.

  Contributions can be made to any fund and can be done in any amount in a variety of ways. The donor button on the home page allows credit card contributions. You may wish to work with your financial advisors, attorneys, accountants, or financial planners for assistance with contributions that can provide income, tax savings, or both while also benefiting your charitable passions.  See more information on these vehicles under Estate Planning.  A new program allows local farmers to make Gifts of Grain – click the link for more information.

 The Greene County Foundation is YOUR vehicle to making a lasting difference in Greene County not only for today, but for all our tomorrows.
