Types of Funds

Unrestricted Funds 
Meet the ever-changing needs of the Greater Oxford Community through an unrestricted fund. With the establishment of an unrestricted fund your giving addresses a wide range of needs – including future needs for our evolving community. 

Field of Interest Funds 
By giving to a Field of Interest Fund you can provide immediate support to an area or areas of personal interest. Foundation has eight Field of Interest Funds that support a variety of community projects. The eight interest areas are: Arts and Culture, Beautification, Civic Projects, Education, Environmental, Health Services, Recreation and Social Welfare. 

Restricted Funds 
By establishing a Restricted Fund you are able to target your giving to specific areas of interest or nonprofit organizations. Your area of interest can be as broad or narrow as you wish, based on your charitable giving interests. 

Donor Advised 
Funds By establishing a Donor Advised Fund you are able to make a charitable gift to the Foundation and remain actively involved in suggesting uses for your gifts. If you have a range of community interests, this may be an ideal vehicle for fulfilling your charitable goals. 

In creating a Scholarship, you invest in Oxford’s future and show students you care. The Foundation helps you meet your charitable goals and awards Scholarships to deserving students. Your gift can help students in the Talawanda School District achieve their lifetime dreams.
