Current Giving — Set up a Fund Today; Make an Impact Tomorrow

THCF has 6 current giving fund options:

Community Grant Making Fund

Community Grant Making Funds provide THCF with flexible resources to address the community’s most pressing needs, now and into the future. THCF’s Board of Directors and Advisory Boards make informed funding decisions after reviewing community grant applications and conducting on-site visits insuring the most qualified charities receive funding today and into the future.

Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds (Family Foundations) eliminate the need for a private foundation. You focus on giving to nonprofits of your choosing; we take care of the paperwork.

Scholarship Funds

Scholarship funds can benefit individuals attending specific institutions or those with particular backgrounds or interests. We work with you to set guidelines for candidate selection and scholarship awards.

Field of Interest Funds

Field of Interest Funds allow you to concentrate your giving on a particular issue or geographic area — such as ending hunger, protecting the environment or improving education. You direct your giving to the nonprofits addressing your concerns.

Designated Funds

Designated Funds support your charitable organizations of choice.

Nonprofit Partner Funds

Nonprofit Partner Funds are set up by nonprofits to grow their assets and, in so doing, can provide permanent sources of revenue for those organizations.

We will personalize fund documents to best suit you. Our experienced staff will work with you so you can make maximum impact with your charitable fund.

Legacy Giving — Do You Want to Leave a Legacy?

If so, then one of our legacy giving options may work best for you. Our experienced staff will work with you and your trusted professional advisor to create a legacy giving fund or a legacy giving vehicle that accomplishes your financial and charitable goals.
