Types of Funds

CFGC has created several types of funds to match individual areas of interest.

  • Donor-Advised Funds – make charitable contributions at your suggestion, giving you flexibility to address various needs in the community. Donor-advised funds are ideal if you would like to take a charitable deduction for one year and spread the contributions out over the following years.
  • Designated Funds – give your preferred charities or agencies grants for specified needs or assistance.
  • Field of Interest Funds – provide readily-available resources for causes that are of greatest priority to you.
  • Agency Funds – help nonprofit organizations protect and preserve their endowments for future generations.  The organizations are also given valuable recognition through inclusion in the Foundation’s investment portfolio.
  • Memorial Funds – ensure that a special person is remembered in perpetuity through a fund that reflects his or her charitable priorities.
  • Project Funds – assist an organization with a specific project or community goal like the Warner Park Kidz Place playground.
  • Scholarship Funds – provide education advantages and assistance for Chattanooga students of lesser privileged areas, levels of income, or schools.
  • Unrestricted Funds –  pool unspecified donations and use them to address immediate and pressing needs in the community.  Most of these gifts go to the Fund for Chattanooga, the Foundation’s largest fund.
