Field of Interest Funds

A Field of Interest Fund provides you with the opportunity to invest in the causes and communities you care about most.

Field of Interest Funds grant to a specific issue or cause and allow many different donors to pool their contributions for a collective impact. This allows all donations, large or small, to make a great impact in our community. Join like-minded funders and leverage your resources to make an even bigger difference.
