Field of Interest Funds

Effective Grantmaking in Specific Interest Areas

A Field of Interest Fund (FOI) allows you to make an impact in specific fields over time.  You identify a specific or broad interest area (such as education, the arts, or affordable housing) and Jefferson Community Foundation ensures effective grantmaking within that field as the needs change over time.  This type of fund allows your grantmaking to evolve as the needs within the field do and gives you peace of mind knowing that JCF will be there to identify the best nonprofits in the issue area you have selected to ensure your legacy lives on. 

JCF currently oversees five Field of Interest Funds.
