Open a Fund

Establishing a charitable fund at BCF is an easy and effective way to carry out your philanthropy.

All that’s necessary is a simple fund agreement and your gift to open the fund. Most funds may be opened with a minimum gift of $10,000; to endow a new scholarship the minimum is $200,000.  Your fund may be created with a current gift, or through a planned gift like a bequest.

We’d love to meet with you to talk about your dreams and goals, and create a plan that matches your charitable purpose and financial situation.
