Types of Funds
INVOLVES DONORS AND THE USE OF THEIR GIFT
Donors work closely with our PCF Grants Committee and staff, identifying the most effective ways to use the dollars in the fund to address the issues and needs that they personally care about the most. Those recommendations are submitted to the Foundation’s board for approval and, once that’s received, we then distribute grant award dollars.
ESTABLISHES AND MANAGES ENDOWMENTS FOR LOCAL CHARITIES
SET UP TO MEET THE EVER-CHANGING NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY
ESTABLISHED TO ADDRESS NEEDS IN A SPECIFIC AREA OR PART OF THE COMMUNITY
Donors can target their gift to areas that they feel are important: education, the arts, environment, seniors, youth and healthcare are just a few examples. A donor identifies his or her personal area or areas of interest when making the gift. Following that, our board awards grants to community groups and/or programs that are deemed to be working most effectively in those areas.
