Types of Funds

MACF administers several types of funds to meet your needs.  No matter what your philanthropic goals are, we have a fund to match!

Community Investment Fund: Meeting Ever-Changing Community Needs

When you establish a Community Investment Fund, you can address a broad range of local needs, including future needs that often cannot be anticipated today.  

Donor-Advised Funds: A Personal Approach to Giving

If you want to be actively involved in suggesting uses for your donation, a Donor-Advised Fund is the perfect way to do it.  It's a simple, powerful, and a highly personal approach to giving, and you can change your focus anytime you want.

Field-of-Interest Funds: Connecting Personal Values to High-impact Opportunities

If you're passionate about a particular cause (or causes), a Field-of-Interest Fund will allow you to target specific areas of community life such as arts, at-risk youth, community development, or other initiatives. 

Designated Funds: Helping Local Organizations Sustain and Grow

If you'd like to make a lasting impact for a particular non-profit organization - a senior center, museum, or other organization - a Designated Fund is exactly what you're looking for. 

Organizational Funds: Endowing Your Nonprofit Organization

If you are a nonprofit organization, you can establish an Organizational Fund with us.  It's a simple and efficient way to build an endowment and help create sustainability for your nonprofit organization.

Scholarship Funds: Investing in Deserving Students

If education is your thing, then establishing a Scholarship Fund will allow you to help hardworking area students achieve their lifetime dreams.  Scholarship funds are a great way to memorialize a loved one, and you'll be able to target your scholarship in any way you choose.

Project Funds: Focus on Fundraising, Not Fund Management

If you're working on a short-term community project, a Project Fund is the ideal vehicle. We'll manage all accounting, tax receipts, and donor communication, so you can focus on fundraising. 

Giving Circle Funds: Graciously Giving with a Group

Would you like to inject a social element into your philanthropy?  A Giving Circle Fund is a great opportunity to combine your contributions with other like-minded individuals so that you can all collectively make a lasting difference on the causes you value most.
