Open a Fund - get started
Opening a charitable fund at Blue Grass Community Foundation is a quick, simple process that will reap invaluable benefits to you and your community. From your fund, you may make grants to any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that you’re passionate about, including places of worship and your alma mater. Having a charitable fund is inexpensive, flexible and much easier and more private than starting your own private foundation.
Anyone can open a charitable fund. Our fees start as low as $21 per month. We have charitable funds ranging from a few thousand dollars to millions of dollars in assets. We believe that giving is important and impactful at all levels. To learn more, see our Fee Schedule.
To get started, please complete the following form. Once we receive your information, a staff member will contact you to complete the process and finalize the governing document, called a fund agreement, to formally open your fund.
