Designated Fund Grants are regular grants that are made to specific eligible organizations named by the donor. Donors may name one or several organizations, and a percentage of the fund's value will be distributed to the the donor's favorite charities in the name of their fund. If donors like, they may specify how the organization should use the grant. For example, donors may instruct the Foundation to tell the beneficiary organization to use the grant for "educational programs" or "landscape maintenance."
