Grant making

The purpose of the Foundation is to accept charitable gifts to be applied in various ways to the permanent endowment. These gifts are invested and administered by the Investment Committee of the Board of Directors and grants are made semi-annually to worthy non-profit organizations in our community. In 2001, 119 grants totaling $2.6 million were made from the endowment.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The RSF Foundation is a community foundation that aims to provide philanthropic resources to assist donors in increasing the impact of their charitable giving.

As a community foundation, RSF Foundation is uniquely positioned with expertise in local and regional community issues. We offer programs for collective grantmaking to enable donors to make more of an impact together than most could do alone. We also provide donor advised funds, legacy funds for planned giving, nonprofit endowment funds and trustworthy advice for charitable giving opportunities.

We have a 25-member board with professional financial and philanthropic expertise, senior staff with decades of experience in nonprofit and philanthropic fields, and current technology systems to support donor needs.

RSF Foundation is a recognized community leader for The Patriots Connection grants and collaborative Community Impact Fund grants. Donors value the board and staff expertise for stewardship of their charitable funds and trustworthy, personalized advice for strategic philanthropy.
