Establishing A Fund Through Unity Foundation

Creating a fund within Unity Foundation of La Porte County is an easy process. By working with you individually, as well as your financial advisor, our staff  is able to customize a fund to achieve your philanthropic goals. Unity Foundation of La Porte County generally uses the following process when creating a new endowment fund.

Three Things That Make Us Different:

Knowledge of the Community

Because the Foundation is focused on the totality of our community’s needs, we can weave together broad-scale solutions from all our funds and test new approaches. The reason we can attack an issue from so many angles is because of the variety of funds we hold that are all rounded out by unrestricted dollars.

Flexibility & Longevity

Our team of professionals can help you achieve anything you wish, anywhere in the world with your philanthropy. As a public entity led by the leaders of our community, your philanthropic intent will be protected forever.

Investment & Tax Benefits

Community foundations are skilled in investing assets, as well as seeking grant opportunities that mesh with donors’ interests. And, partnering with us allows you the greatest tax benefits provided, significantly higher than charitable gifts to a private foundation.

Endowment Funds

Building permanent endowments is our job. Learn about this opportunity and why it matters to La Porte County.
