A field of interest fund allows you to direct your gift to a specific area of need, geography or interest you care about, whether it’s fostering the arts, providing support to low-income families, preserving the environment or any other worthwhile cause.
You may receive an immediate tax deduction for your opening contribution and any subsequent donations. Additional gifts of any amount may be made whenever you wish.
We honor your wishes forever by working with you to establish the criteria and a process for making grants from the fund. BTCF invests the funds and provides all necessary legal and record- keeping services.
Field of interest funds are flexible enough to fund a variety of recipients and yet focused enough to create a highly personal and permanent charitable legacy.
Minimum to open a field of interest fund: $25,000
