KZCF donors established six new funds since the Winter issue of UPDATE. Other types of funds include Field of Interest (FOI) Funds. FOI Funds enable donors to focus their giving on the community issues or causes they care about most.

These funds are for donors, or family of donors, who want to be actively involved with their fund.
  • SophieStrong Memorial Fund
These funds benefit a specific nonprofit, educational institution or faith-based organization. Individual donors or the organization themselves may establish these funds.
  • Kalamazoo County Ready 4s/Sandra Standish Endowment Fund
Scholarships invest primarily in post-high school education and training for traditional and non-traditional students.
These funds have been established with gifts totaling $5,000 or more and can be established over time. Each gift to Love Where You Live Funds accumulates, and when $5,000 in gifts have been received, the donor can choose to name the fund.
  • Anonymous Fund
  • Tom and Donna Lambert Community Fund
  • James and Georgia Vavra Fund
