ICF offers those individuals that want to make a difference but
have not yet identified a specific cause or nonprofit to support,
the flexibility of an unrestricted fund. Once your fund is established,
ICF will manage your resources for you to actively and efficiently
serve the current and emerging needs of nonprofit organizations
in the regions that we serve through discretionary grants.
At ICF we allow our donors to express and reflect their personal
charitable interests. A restricted fund is the best option for a
donor who already has a relationship or connection established with
a nonprofit organization that works in his/her charitable field
of interest. Grants may be distributed by geographic area, target
populations or issue.
ICF offers individuals, corporations, family foundations, and private
foundations the opportunity to establish either permanent or non-permanent
donor-advised funds that allow active donor participation in the
grantmaking process. With a “donor-advised fund”, the
donor makes a recommendation to the ICF board regarding prospective
grantees and grant amounts, and after a rigorous due-diligence process,
ICF assists you in planning the best grantmaking strategy.
Baja Social Venture Partners Fund
The Baja SVP fund allows donors to collectively pool their resources
and then cooperatively work to identify innovative nonprofit ventures
that have a measured high social impact in the San Diego-Tijuana
region. Donors select an organization to receive a one-time grant
that will serve to “catalyze” future funding or other
self-sustaining initiatives for the grantee.

opening their own donor-advised fund at ICF. These “friends
of” funds help worthy organizations with operational and programmatic
needs throughout the year.
