Donor Advised Fund

Darren Nienaber Fund

This fund was established to honor the memory of Darren Nienaber. In 2018, Darren realized his dream of starting a nonprofit organization, People and Otters, aimed at protecting nature in the Pacific Northwest. Similarly, this fund will support efforts to protect and conserve nature in the Pacific Northwest.

"I know I can pick up the phone and call the CommunityFoundation and they'll take our call... I've been incredibly impressed with the generosity and sense of togetherness I've encountered in the South Sound. This community is strong because of that and only because of that."

- Brian, Local Nonprofit Leader
