Crevier Starts Community Foundation Fund
Local philanthropist Donnie Crevier has established a donor advised fund at the Laguna Beach Community Foundation and also made a $25,000 unrestricted foundation donation.
“I believe in our Laguna Beach community and its nonprofits. I would encourage Laguna Beach residents to learn more about the benefits of supporting charities through the Laguna Beach Community Foundation,” said Crevier. “Giving back to the community here in Laguna and to other communities brings me joy. During these difficult times, there are many needs that could use our support.”
Donors receive an immediate charitable contribution deduction when establishing a donor advised fund, which allows the benefactor to decide upon grantees or assign that give responsibility to the foundation, said foundation chief executive Darrcy Loveland.
