The Chinese Heritage Foundation Inagural Fund has been established to receive contributions and distribute grants in support of the Chinese Heritage Foundation's funding priorities. It is governed by an advisory committee elected by the contributors. Since it is a component fund of The Minneapolis Foundation, contributions to the Chinese Heritage Fund are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Contributions to the fund are welcome in any amount.
Individuals and families that support the funding priorities and values of the Chinese Heritage Foundation may create their own Donor Advised Funds under the Chinese Heritage Foundation umbrella. Donor Advised Funds require a minimum balance of $10,000. Those that are affiliated with the Chinese Heritage Foundation are expected to recommend a significant portion of their grants in support of its priorites.
