Fund Options

As a donor to the Lawton Community Foundation, you can make gifts to existing funds or you can establish a charitable fund. It all depends on what you want to accomplish. Below is an overview of our fund options.

Advised Funds: Legacy, Gift & Express Funds
If you are considering a charitable fund through which you and your family could support specific nonprofit organizations or projects, then an advised fund may be an appropriate choice. We offer three advised fund options including two that are not permanent funds.
