Invest Your Funds
As an EBCF fund advisor, you can choose to invest your funds in one of four pools: a cash pool, a short-term pool, intermediate-term pool or a long-term pool. Use the Investment Change form to make recommendations for your investment allocations. Typically, fund advisors do not change their investments often, but when appropriate, EBCF will accommodate these changes on a quarterly basis.
Make a Gift to EBCF
Unrestricted gifts made directly to East Bay Community Foundation are the best way to make an immediate impact on the present and future of the East Bay. All gifts made to EBCF are tax-deductible (Tax ID/EIN 94-6070996).
Make a Grant Recommendation
Fund advisors can make your grant recommendations (which initiate grants to nonprofits) using your DonorCentral account.
