SEED FUND PROGRAM
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. —Anne Frank

FUNDS FOR THE COMMON GOOD
Meeting ever-changing community needs.
Unrestricted gifts allow our program staff and board of trustees to do what they do best: assess community needs and respond by awarding grants to the nonprofit organizations that undertake our community’s most critical work. Funds for the Common Good help the Community Foundation support long-term solutions; respond quickly to emergencies; and meet changing social, cultural, educational, or environmental needs in our local community.

Imagine having the ability to support the causes you care about most… forever. You can start building the foundation for your charitable giving through a new fund opportunity at the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation. Seed Funds allow you to start a fund and gradually build upon it to create a mature endowment fund. Your Seed Fund will grow into an endowment that will let you support the charities or causes you choose, and will forever have an impact on the quality of life in your community. HOW IT WORKS: • The Seed Fund Program can be used to establish any type of endowment fund: Fund for the Common Good, Field of Interest Fund, Designated Fund, Agency Fund, Donor-Advised Fund, or a Scholarship Fund. • Donors make an initial contribution of at least $1,000 to establish the Seed Fund and then use the next three years to build the fund to the required minimum endowment level. Minimum endowment levels vary according to fund type. • A funding plan must be submitted at the time the Seed Fund is established that includes a detailed, reasonable approach to raising the required fund minimum by a specific date that is no more than three years from the date the fund is established. • When a seed fund reaches the minimum endowment level, the fund matures into an active charitable endowment fund. • Distributions can be made to the causes and charities of the donor’s choice once the fund has reached the minimum endowment level. • Gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Consult your tax advisor. For more information about establishing a fund at the Community Foundation, contact Tracy McMath at 419-425-1100 or tmcmath@ community-foundation.com. CURRENT SEED FUNDS: The following funds are current Seed Funds at the Community Foundation. Donations to these funds are especially encouraged, as they will help them grow to the required endowment level more quickly. Once these funds reach the endowment level, annual grants can be made to support the charitable wishes of the founders.

A FUND FOR THE COMMON GOOD AT WORK
Deborah Ruth Wall Fund Jim and Pat Wall established this fund in 1993 in memory of their daughter, Debbie, with the proceeds of her estate. A generous and caring young woman, they are confident she would approve of this gift to the Community Foundation for the benefit of the community. Establishing Gift: $100,000 Grants Awarded from the Deborah Ruth Wall Fund: 1999 Hancock Historical Museum $17,810 2000 Blanchard Valley Industries $5,000 2001 Findlay City Schools $3,800 2002 Findlay Hope House $11,000 2003 Family Resource Center $8,000 2005 Arts Partnership $10,000 2006 Findlay YMCA $5,000 2007 C.H.O.P.I.N. Hall $6,163 2008 Hancock Co. Prosecutor’s Office $6,490 2009 Hancock Park District $6,822 2010 American Red Cross $6,260 2011 CASA/GAL of Hancock County $5,621 2011 University of Findlay $24 2012 Flag City Honor Flight $5,138 2013 Camp Fire USA, NWO Council $5,341 Grant total = $102,469 Fund Balance as of August 31, 2013: $119,842 Endowments Grow While They Give Back Because the annual spending is less than long-term investment results, endowments grow while they give back. The numbers tell the story: based on actual results, a gift of $100,000 in 1993 has funded grants of $102,469 by 2013. And, it has left in place $119,842 as a reservoir for Findlay and Hancock County’s future. A Gift to Endowment is Here for Good Whether $100 or $1,000,000, a gift to endowment is here for good.
