Giving is easy through our online donor portal. We have many options, including making an unrestricted gift that gives TGF the flexibility to use where it is most needed. Donors can also select one of our existing charitable funds created by community members in support of an area of interest or specific nonprofit organization or they can create their own fund.
You are encouraged to donate to those funds whose causes resonate. Click on the donate button at the bottom of the fund to be taken to TGF’s donation portal.
There are four types of funds.
Anyone can create a fund supporting causes or organizations for which are meaningful to them or to honor a friend or loved one. The minimum donation to establish a fund is $10,000, which can be given over five years through our Acorn program. Click here to learn more. How do I create my own fund?
In aggregate, all of the charitable funds create our endowment. We work with the investment professionals at the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven (CFGNH) to preserve and grow our endowment. TGF’s individual funds are pooled and invested in a diversified portfolio managed by CFGNH.
The field of interest or organizations a fund supports should align with causes that matter to the donor. The Guilford Foundation will not award grants to/for: debt reduction, endowments, individuals, lobbying, political organizations and campaigns, or replace government funding sources.
