You can support the causes closest to your heart without having to choose a specific charity. By directing your gift to a Focus Area, our experts and advisors will ensure your gift responds to the most relevant, pressing needs of the community — now and into the future.
Communities are dynamic, and it’s hard to predict the next issue or crisis. The Community Impact Fund is a Focus Area that enables us to respond to urgent and timely needs of the community.
Through the fund, we can support charities that address, shape, and adapt to emergent issues. It also allows us to do our best work to fund a wide range of pressing social, cultural, and environmental projects.
By supporting the Community Impact Fund, you make the most of your gift by letting our community advisors direct it to where it’s needed most.
Most recently, it’s how we directed millions of dollars to pandemic response and flood relief in a matter of days. We’ve also been able to quickly respond to calls for racial justice by prioritizing funding for equity-seeking communities.
