When we design a fund, we want it to reflect the people—and hearts—behind it. We work with you to understand your goals and tailor a fund to match. Once it’s all set up, we handle the details.

So tell us: What are you passionate about?

Types of Funds

Explore the possibilities for putting your gift to work.

Unrestricted Funds

A flexible fund directed by the foundation

You make the gift. FCFP determines where it will have the greatest impact.

Donor Advised Funds

A personalized giving experience

You get to decide, year over year, which nonprofit or cause your fund supports. It’s a great way to engage your family in giving conversations.

Designated Funds

A gift with a specific charity in mind

You make a gift to a beloved nonprofit. We manage and grow the gift so the charity thrives for years to come.

Field of Interest Funds

A fund in favor of a specific cause

Give to an area you hold dear—education or environment, arts or social services. We direct the funds to where they’re most needed from there.

Scholarship Funds

A gift to support ongoing education

Create an annual scholarship shaped around area of study, GPA, geographic area, extracurriculars, and other criteria.

Organizational Endowments

A fund for nonprofit longevity

Organizations create a permanent fund to support their work. We help increase the endowment and manage it with minimal cost.

Should I endow my fund?

For donors who want their gifts to continue into the future, creating an endowed fund is a great choice. The gift is invested as principal, and a percentage of the interest becomes grant funding, preserving the donor’s legacy.

Donors with time-bound needs might consider a non-endowed fund. These pass-through funds can be used to grant some (or all) of the principal gift to a project or event.
