Committee Advised Fund

With a committee fund, you can join other, like-minded investors who are partnering with Silicon Valley Community Foundation to realize shared charitable goals. A committee fund is created by a group of people who pool their contributions towards a common purpose and work together to make recommendations on the fund's distributions to the community.

Our expert team is available to help you set up a committee fund using a range of assets, including cash, public stock, restricted stock, real estate, limited partnerships and more. A minimum donation of $5,000 is required to create a committee fund. Interested donors can also join any of the foundation's existing committee funds.
