Open a Donor-Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund with Central Indiana Community Foundation—or either of our affiliates, The Indianapolis Foundation and Hamilton County Community Foundation—allows donors to potentially realize the greatest tax benefits of charitable giving while flexibly supporting their favorite charities over time.

We want to make charitable giving equitable, easy and fulfilling. Encouraging people to be generous and supporting our neighbors to make our community—and the world—a better place is a privilege we have had for more than 100 years.

There is no minimum requirement to open a donor-advised fund.

To open your fund, simply complete this form, which should take just a few minutes. Upon receipt of your application, CICF staff will contact you to finalize your new fund agreement.

If you have any questions throughout the process, please contact:

Open a Donor-Advised Fund

Let's Get Started!

Please choose a name for your donor-advised fund. Ex. Smith Family Fund or John and Jane Smith Fund.

Next, tell us who should have access to your fund

We refer to these individuals as Fund Advisors. You may have up to 2 Fund Advisors for your Fund. Each Fund Advisor will have full and equal privileges with respect to your Fund, but the Primary Fund Advisor will serve as the primary point of contact with CICF
