To support a specific charity, you recommend a future grant and submit it to the Tompkins Charitable Gift Fund administrator. The administrator performs due diligence to verify that the request is intended for an IRS 501(c)(3) public charity. Once eligibility is confirmed, we earmark the contribution to be made to the specified charities.

When you pass away, the charity you designated receives the value of your Pooled Income Fund. We make the donation on your behalf, but you may also choose to give anonymously if you prefer.
