Start a Fund

You can establish a charitable fund with a contribution of $25,000 or you can start with a $5,000 contribution and build it over a period of years.


When you establish a fund with HCF, you can designate community non-profits you want to support or you can identify general areas of interest e.g. arts and culture and work with HCF to advise on what organizations or program you want to support.  Alternatively, you can entrust HCF to identify the organizations and programs to support with your specific area(s) of interests.


Through a partnership with the Oregon Community Foundation, HCF invests your fund and each year a substantial part of the returns are available for grants to your favorite charitable organizations.  The balance of the returns is reinvested so that the fund principal not only remains intact, but also grows.  This enables you, through HCF, to make larger grants over time an in perpetuity.


HCF encourages named endowment funds whereby you and your family attach your name ensuring a lasting legacy of giving within the community.
