Make a Gift or Start a Fund

Philanthropy can be a powerful force for good.  

We help you make a meaningful IMPACT with your gift.

We connect people who care with causes that matter.

For 70 years we've been a link between those who want to give and those people and organizations who have needs in the greater Rochester area. We help donors identify options for giving and carry out their wishes.

Ultimately, our goal is to assist donors in making the most of their generosity. Here is a great look at some of our largest supporters.

It’s about taking what you can give and making it meaningful for both you and those who will ultimately benefit. It’s not about the size of the gift; every gift matters.  Give to support a cause, address an issue or help a charitable organization. You can start your own fund, give to an existing fund, or give directly to nonprofits in the greater Rochester area.
