- Who We Are
- How Can We Help You?
If you make multiple gifts throughout the year, donor advised funds present a flexible and inexpensive way of organizing your charitable giving. When you create a donor advised fund with us, you join a community of individuals and organizations sharing knowledge and services, enabling you to have maximum impact with your charitable giving.
With these funds, you will never lose the satisfaction of directing money to your favorite organizations. Yet, donor advised funds come with the added benefits of expert financial and investment management.
Donor advised funds afford many of the advantages of private foundations but with greater tax benefit, fewer restrictions and minimal administrative headaches. You create the fund with your initial gift and take the tax deductions each time you contribute. We handle all the necessary accounting, legal and investment services, allowing you to focus on what matters most.
While some donors know exactly how they want to use their funds, others seek our expert guidance. Our staff specializes in connecting donors with the nonprofit organizations and community projects that best match their interests and goals. Other services include exclusive giving opportunities and learning events.
Donor advised funds allow you to make grants of $250 or more. To start a fund, we accept a variety of asset types and offer the maximum tax deduction allowable.
Rosy Frost Kirk Fund for the Performing Arts of Hibbing Foundation. Established in 2003, this donor advised fund brings top-notch performing arts to Rosy Kirk’s hometown of Hibbing. Though Kirk now resides in Roseville, her generosity keeps bringing high-quality theater, dance and music companies to audiences in Hibbing. Past appearances include The Minnesota Ballet and The Duluth Superior Orchestra.
The Thayer Family Foundation. Ty and Kit Thayer believe in the importance of making philanthropy a family effort. Taught as children to give back to the community, the Thayers want to instill that same spirit in their family. They include their children and grandchildren in the family’s charitable decision-making, turning a visit to the zoo into an opportunity to decide as a family which related cause to support.
