Unrestricted funds help the Community Foundation support long-term solutions, respond quickly to emergencies and meet changing social, educational or environmental needs throughout the Valley.
How it works:
- Grants are made in the name of the fund you establish, creating your personal legacy of giving.
- You may give your gift immediately or through your will or other estate planning strategy. You can use cash, appreciated stocks, real estate or other assets.
- CVCF Board of Directors, informed by staff and recommendations from grant committees, approves grants that support programs in the Valley.
- If you endow your gift, it becomes a permanent community funding resource.
Central Valley Community Foundation has been a trusted partner in philanthropy for more than 50 years. We cultivate smart philanthropy, lead and invest in solutions that build stronger communities.
