Open a Fund

GLCF has made it easy for you to establish your own charitable legacy. You have free access to GLCF's professional staff who will be happy to work with you and your advisors to decide how best to accomplish your charitable goals.

A family, individual, nonprofit agency or corporation may initially establish a named fund with cash, securities or other property. The fund must be built up to $5,000 within three years, and then the $5,000 must be invested for four quarters before grants can be distributed.

There are many ways for individuals, families, companies and private foundations to establish a fund at GLCF. The arrangements usually can be made during one meeting, with funds being governed by a clear and brief agreement and funds may be established immediately or at later date during your life. Please CONTACT US to start a fund.
