Field of Interest Funds

Create a fund for specific causes or nonprofits that are close to your heart. Field of Interest Funds allow you to focus your charitable giving toward an area of interest, while our expertise determines the most effective organizations completing the best work.

Getting started is easy.

Field of Interest Funds offer you the opportunity to support evolving needs and a variety of nonprofits focused on your area of interest. This type of fund allows donors to work closely with our Community Research and Grants Management team to identify organizations that are making the greatest impact in the area of your choice.

  • Have a specific area of interest you would like to support.
  • Want to learn more about other nonprofit organizations in the central Ohio community offering programs and initiatives in your chosen field of interest.
  • Seek expertise in research and community evaluation to determine needs, opportunities and effectiveness of local nonprofit programs and initiatives.
