DONOR ADVISED FUND
A donor advised fund helps you to be actively involved in the granting process. Funds are managed and administered by BVEF, but you advise The Fund about preferences regarding grant recipients, grant amounts and fund permanence. Donor advised funds receive the maximum tax benefits and the donor is not responsible for the tax filings.
Legacy funds allow you to give part of your estate to continue your vision of providing equity, opportunity and prosperity to future generations and the causes you care about. By deciding how you would like an estate gift to be managed, The Fund will steward your legacy fund with accuracy, stability and integrity to ensure your intentions are honored, now and forever.
GIVE TO BVEF FOCUS AREAS
The BVEF recognizes that creating maximum beneficial impact for the entire community means addressing the region’s largest challenges. Although there are many ways to group the region’s largest challenges, many of which are interrelated, the BVEF has identified seven Areas of Interest designed to define categories for proposals it would like to support. One may think of these Focus Areas as “buckets” into which any number of proposals may fit.
