CFSW-Map-Counties

These funds serve more than one county in the region. Bolded funds on this list signify endowment funds. An endowment fund is a permanent source of funding for the charitable purpose intended by the donor. The principal of the fund is invested and a portion of the fund’s earnings are spent annually for grant purposes. Endowment funds continue to serve as a source of grant funding for their communities forever.
