You pick the issue or issues, and we find and fund effective organizations addressing them.
No matter your cause, our deep bench of experts can help. A field-of-interest fund is a wise choice if you want to make an impact in a particular area—job training, education, or the arts. You can also create a fund to address multiple issues, or one with a specific focus, such as preserving parks in the Bronx.
Our staff will use your gift to help groups that work on the issues you care about. We vet proposals, visit potential grantees, and combine your gift with others to make a bigger impact. If you establish a fund during your lifetime, we’ll report back to you on the groups you’re funding.
The gift stays relevant: A field-of-interest fund keeps up with the times. For instance: Many of today’s pressing health problems, like widespread obesity and opioid addiction have little resemblance to those of a few decades ago, such as polio. Times change.
