Types of Funds

Your gift to the Brampton and Caledon Community Foundation can be tailored to your interests and charitable objectives. A $5000 minimum donation is suggested but further discussion on this point can occur.

Community Endowment Funds: The Foundation's Board of Directors directs the earnings to where they can be used most effectively to meet the community's changing needs.

Designated Endowment Funds: The fund holder chooses specific charitable organizations that will be perpetual beneficiaries from the fund.

Field of Interest Endowment Funds: The fund holder specifies a particular area of interest, such as children, the arts or environmental issues.

Donor Advised Endowment Funds: The fund holder advises BACCF each year as to which charitable organizations are to receive grants.

Agency Endowment Funds: Established by registered charities to benefit from BACCF's professional investment management. Income from the fund is distributed back to the charity annually.

Memorial Endowment Funds: Create a lasting tribute for a loved one.

Flow-Through Funds: The fund holder gives instructions on disbursements to charitable organizations or causes. The grant is made via BACCF to the end recipient.

Administration Endowment Funds: A gift of any size can be made to offset operating costs, contributing to the successful management and fund development of the Brampton and Caledon Community Foundation.
