* Legacy Funds, or funds designed by their founders to grow in perpetuity

This list, which is continually updated as charitable individuals, families, companies and nonprofits establish new funds, is divided into the following types of funds:

Unrestricted funds, in which the donor left use of the proceeds of the fund entirely up to the community foundation

Field-of-interest funds, in which the donor chooses the cause or geographic community he or she wishes to serve, but not the actual grantee

Donor-advised funds, in which donors and their families recommend grants as frequently as they wish to whatever charities they wish to support

Scholarship funds, which generous benefactors and organizations use to help students continue their education at a particular college, university or trade school or in a certain field of study.

Designated funds, in which the donor specified one or more nonprofits that would receive grants in perpetuity

Agency endowment funds, which help a nonprofit to create a permanent stream of income for its charitable mission
