About Donor Advised Funds

 
This fund allows donors to create a fund to fulfill their individual philanthropic wishes, and to make recommendations for specific organizations to receive grants, consistent with the charitable mission of FSC. Donors can recommend grants to groups/organizations or FSC staff will work with donors to help identify potential groups/organizations to match the donor's interests. Recommended grants will be approved by the FSC Board of Directors only if the recommendations are deemed consistent with the mission of FSC. Funds are invested consistently with FSC's Socially Responsible Investment Policies.
