Create a Donor-Advised Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving

Start a Tradition of Giving Today

Creating a charitable fund is a unique, personal and powerful way to make a difference in the areas you and your family care about most – today and for generations to come.

The Hartford Foundation’s more than 1,200 charitable funds are as distinctive as the individuals, families, and organizations that created them. Some address specific issues, others support selected organizations or geographic regions.

While there are many fund types, a donor-advised fund gives you the greatest control of your giving, allowing you to recommend grants to qualified nonprofit organizations throughout Greater Hartford and around the globe. As your interests change, so can your grantmaking. You can even involve other family members or future generations in decision-making, building a family legacy of philanthropy.

As a fundholder, we invite you to work with our staff, tapping into their expertise in the nonprofit community and the grantmaking process. 

Why wait? Let us help you make the most of your charitable giving. Contact Deborah Rothstein, J.D., Vice President for Development at 860-548-1888 or
