Designated Funds


With a designated fund, you can directly give to one or more specific organizations and even select a specific purpose for use of the monies within the organization. This is a way to provide ongoing funding for social service agencies, arts organizations, educational institutions, or any other kind of public charity or qualified project. Once the recipient is selected, Horizon Community Funds executives manage the one-time or multi-year annual distribution of funds forever.

If the designated recipient organization ceases or changes its mission, the fund will be redirected to continue to address your philanthropic intent and preserve your interests over time. We believe this is our duty to you and your legacy.

What Horizon Community Funds brings to the table is ability to use OUR resources to address OUR needs. Keeping the administration in Kentucky provides tax advantages as well. As an individual, Iā€™m not be able to tackle big projects alone. In collaboration with other Northern Kentuckians making gifts big and small, I can help make lasting changes in a growing community to benefit future generations.
