Create a Fund – Individual & Family

Four Simple Steps

Brent and Pam Cousino

With four simple steps you can join hundreds of others who have created funds at the Foundation.

1.  Define your charitable goals. Decide if you want family members involved, both now and/or in the future. Consider how much involvement you want in selecting the charitable organizations that will receive grants from your fund. Think about how much you want to give in charitable contributions each year.

2.  Contact a member of our Philanthropic Services Department: call 419.241.5049 or email Mike George or Bridget Brell Holt, to discuss the fund option or options that best suit your interests and needs. We can create a personalized plan, including the appropriate legal and other documentation, which makes giving simple and relevant.

3.  Determine which asset or giving vehicle (described on Gift Option page) you will use to start your fund. Evaluate the options of lifetime assets versus planned giving assets – or a combination of the two.

4.  Select a name for your fund. Many donors choose a family name or a name that honors or memorializes a loved one. Perhaps the company name. You choose.
