Types of Funds

Donors can choose from a diverse menu of funds offered by CKCF that can be individualized to meet the donors’ intent. Offering an assortment of funds gives you many different ways to facilitate your community and charitable interests.

What is an Endowment?

When you create a charitable fund through Central Kentucky Community Foundation, you have the opportunity to benefit your charitable interests forever with a permanent fund. An endowment is a permanent gift. Only the earnings are distributed, giving you an opportunity to benefit the community forever. Your gift is invested over time. Earnings from your fund are used to make grants supporting community initiatives that matter to you. Your gift, and all earnings from your gift — is a permanent source of community capital, helping do good work forever.

Donor Advised Funds give donors the opportunity to recommend grants to eligible charitable recipients. Donor Advised Funds may be established as endowed or non-endowed funds.

Designated Funds provide ongoing funding for a specific nonprofit organization or purpose.

Agency Funds are established by a nonprofit organization for their perpetual benefit.

Scholarship Funds provide support for individuals who are pursuing training or educational opportunities to fulfill their life dreams.
