Organization Fund Benefits

There are several benefits to having an organization fund with the Foundation.

  • Our board is available for consultation with you, your board members, and potential donors of your organization. As an affiliate, we also have access to professional expertise from the Greater Salina Community Foundation staff.
  • If you do not already have a private foundation, you can establish a fund with us and avoid the paperwork, time and expense of running your own private foundation.
  • Your money is invested with all the funds held at Greater Salina Community Foundation and its regional affiliates. This allows your money to be invested in more sophisticated funds with a higher buy in level that otherwise you would not have access to. Learn more about our investment strategy here.
  • Your organization will be listed in the Foundation’s annual report, on our website and are sometimes featured in our newsletters.

Regardless if your organization has a fund at the Foundation, we still offer opportunities for all nonprofit organizations and others performing charitable work in the Washington County area to apply for grants from the Foundation’s Washington County Opportunity Fund. A call for applications is announced in the Foundation’s newsletter, on our website, and through the mass media.
