About the Fund
Do you want to support many different Eau Claire area nonprofits without having to set up your own fund? If so, a gift to the B.J. and Bea Farmer Family Fund might be a great option for you.
This Fund provides a strong source of grant funding for a wide variety of organizations. Unlike many other Funds, which focus on specific areas based on donor intent and field of interest, the B.J. and Bea Farmer Family Fund is unrestricted. Its flexibility allows the Foundation's grant reviewers to fund grant applications that address the community's most pressing needs, even if the proposed programs don't specifically correspond to the objectives of other existing Funds.
A gift to this Fund is an excellent way to ensure that a diverse array of nonprofit organizations can continue their fantastic work on behalf of the Eau Claire community.
