Creating a Fund
Establishing a fund is simple since the Pinellas Community Foundation (PCF) manages the administrative details for you. Here’s all you have to do:
- Select the name of your special fund. It can be the name of your family or business or established in honor of any person or organization you choose. Grants are distributed in the name of your fund or if you prefer can be made anonymously.
- Sign a one-page fund agreement.
- Decide which fund category best meets your charitable objectives. Your choice gives you the option of being involved in the good works your gift makes possible, or you may recommend an area of interest or organization you’d like your gift to support.
Given the board of governors and staff’s experience and connection to the community, you may choose to have PCF determine the areas of greatest need in our community on your behalf.
