These funds enable you to recommend specific organizations to receive grants.

Current Pass-Through Funds List

We are happy to have the opportunity to have assisted countless organizations in our region as they’ve grown to become fully-functioning 501-c3 non-profit organizations. Often, these organizations require special assistance as they grow and continue to serve our region, and we work with these organizations and allow them to operate as “pass-throughs” of the Foundation. For a complete list of the pass-through funds, see the list below.
