Donor Resources

When you create a fund at the Community Foundation, we are committed to helping you achieve your charitable goals and encourage you to take advantage of these donor services:

Recommend Grants

  • Online. Through the Giving Center, our online service, you can easily recommend grants at anytime. With just a few clicks, you can make additional grants to groups you’ve already supported. In addition, you can research thousands of organizations that have received grants through the Community Foundation and our donors. Click here to get started. For your Donor First password and log-in instructions, please contact your philanthropic advisor.
  • Paper Document. If you prefer submitting a paper document, print out the Grant Recommendation Form (pdf) and mail or fax (707.579.4801) to the Community Foundation. Download free Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Manage Your Fund

Through the Giving Center, you can view transactions into and out of your fund, which keeps you informed of all current activity. In addition, printed quarterly fund statements provide you with current investment performance and details on all your gift and grant activities.

Work Together

We offer many donor activities for you to get more involved in relevant issues. These provide opportunities to expand your community interests, deepen your knowledge of local nonprofits and increase the impact of your giving.

Privacy Policy

The essential core of the relationship with the Foundation’s donors, and the essence of the trust they place in us, rests on a deep respect for privacy. Our entire privacy policy can be viewed and downloaded at your convenience.
