Field of interest funds

Connect personal values to high-impact opportunities

By establishing a field of interest fund through Kern Community Foundation, you can target your gift to address needs in an important area of community life. Arts. AIDS. Aging. At-risk youth. 

Target your giving

You identify your personal interest area when making your gift; our board awards grants to community organizations and programs that are making a difference in the area you select. Your gift stays flexible enough to meet community needs in your interest area, even as they change over time.

While you define the field of interest for your fund when you create it, we take care of the maintenance. Our professional program staff continually monitors community needs so that you can be sure grants made in the name of the fund make the most impact in your field of interest and create your personal legacy of giving.

You can add any amount to the field of interest fund you establish at any time and so can others who share your interests in community. If you endow your gift, it becomes a permanent community funding resource.

Would you prefer to experience the joys of giving during your lifetimeóor leave a legacy with a deferred gift? We can help recommend a giving strategy thatís right for you. Contact us.
