By working together, Community Fund Ohio and its partner organizations help Ohio residents with disabilities learn about and utilize Pooled Special Needs Trusts to protect their government benefits eligibility and fund their current and future needs.
A person establishing a Pooled Special Needs Trust with Community Fund Ohio may choose to leave funds that remain in the Trust after the beneficiary’s lifetime to Community Fund Ohio or to one of our partner organizations. To leave funds to a partner organization, the proper Joinder Agreement must be completed to establish the Trust.
Trust assets that are retained by Community Fund Ohio are used to fund grants for Ohio residents with disabilities and other Ohio nonprofits that serve people with disabilities. Please visit our Grants page for more information.
