Our Foundation recognizes that the charitable interests within our community are broad and wide. We therefore welcome individuals or families who support our mission, but who wish to direct their own giving, to create individual Donor Advised Funds within our Foundation. This is a wonderful way to create a legacy and to get the next generation involved in charitable giving. Families have found that getting together to discuss grantmaking helps to create special bonds among family members and that the experience proves to be a rewarding one.

While owners of Donor Advised Funds have total discretion in directing their giving, we recommend that a significant portion of their grants be given in support of our funding priorities.

Donor Advised Funds require a minimum balance of $10,000. For more information or to set up your own Donor Advised Fund, please contact us (admin@chineseheritagefoundation.org) or Jenny Johnson, our Asset Development Officer at The Minneapolis Foundation (jjohnson@mplsfoundation.org).
