Field of Interest Funds

What are they?

Field of interest funds are component funds at ETCF which are established and distributed to address a specific area of interest, as identified by the donor.


  • Field of Interest Funds can benefit many charitable organizations under a common interest such as: a certain geographic area, specific demographics or areas of need such as health care, disaster relief, homelessness, education, environment, etc.
  • A committee is typically appointed to make grant distribution recommendations for the fund.
