Types of Funds

The Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin manages over $23 million in assets and more than 277 funds, each with their own specific philanthropic purpose. CFCWI works with donors to create endowed funds designed to last and give forever. Here are the types of fund we offer:

MISSION FUNDS
are maintained by the Foundation to support the focus of our mission, allowing donors to support community efforts they value without designating a specific charitable organization or program.
• Arts & Culture
• Community
• Education
• Environment
• Helping People
• Wellness
• Hartford Waushara County

DONOR ADVISED FUNDS
for donors wishing to award grants to charitable organizations and programs of their choosing.

DESIGNATED FUNDS
for donors who want to identify specific charitable organizations or programs to receive annual support.

SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS
for donors wanting the opportunity to provide scholarships to students.

FIELD OF INTEREST FUNDS
for donors with a specific area of charitable interest that has their own grant application process.

SPECIAL PROJECT/PASS-THROUGH FUNDS
provide non-profit, 501c3 status to organizations in our community to help them fundraise for community projects.

AGENCY FUNDS
are endowments of local non-profits held at CFCWI for secure, long-term investments. CFCWI does not allocate these funds back to the community.

SEED-A-FUTURE FUNDS
are an opportunity for individuals to start a fund who may not have $10,000 to open an Endowed Fund immediately. Donors can grow a fund by contributing as little as $600 a year.
