Starting a place-based community fund

Why start a place-based community fund?

A place-based community fund is a powerful tool for driving local initiatives and addressing the unique needs of your area. By pooling resources and collaborating with fellow community members, you can create sustainable solutions that make a tangible difference. Here’s why you should consider starting a fund with Into Our Hands:

  1. Direct impact: Your contributions go directly toward supporting projects and programs that benefit your community, ensuring that your efforts have a meaningful and immediate impact.
  2. Local solutions: Who knows your community better than you? By establishing a place-based fund, you have the flexibility to address specific challenges and leverage local strengths to create tailored solutions.
  3. Community engagement: Building a sense of ownership and engagement within the community is essential for long-term success. A place-based fund encourages active participation from residents, fostering a culture of collaboration and empowerment.
  4. Sustainability: By investing in local initiatives, you help build a more resilient community that can thrive in the face of challenges. Your fund becomes a sustainable source of support for future generations.
