A designated fund is established by a donor to benefit a specific charity, or program for a charity. Since the first designated fund was established in 1986, BAF has been telling stories of donors and helping local organizations create new stories each year. To date, over $6 million dollars has been distributed from designated funds.
This year, BAF distributed $381,929 to 62 organizations in our area. These grants were made possible by the 118 different designated funds that contributed to the distribution for 2021-2022.
