Community Building Fund

Whatever your goals and no matter your means, you can make a difference – forever – with a donation to the LIFE Institute community fund. This fund supports the full range of LIFE Institute programs. It gives the extra gift of flexibility, allowing your donation to respond to needs and opportunities as they arise.

All contributing to our growing and vibrant LIFE community.



Field of Interest or Special Initiative 

If arts, education, clubs or any other area is close to your heart, a gift to a field of interest or special initiative will help The LIFE Institute develop new programs in your area of interest. You may want to create a lasting fund in your name, or a name of your choice, to support something meaningful to you.  Designated Funds support the area(s) of the LIFE Institute that are close to your heart.
