Unrestricted Fund

Unrestricted funds help the Central Valley Community Foundation (CVCF) 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.

CVCF 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. Our fundholders are making a meaningful difference right here in the Central Valley and you can join them in this important work.
