Kathrina B. Powell Fund

Going to the library was a ritual for Laverne Powell Winn, who honored her late mom Kathrina with a designated fund for Norfolk's branch libraries.

Designated funds: Helping your favorite nonprofits

A designated fund lets you permanently support your favorite nonprofit organizations -- even after your lifetime. With a gift of $25,000 or more you can guarantee that the nonprofit or nonprofits you name (e.g. a human service organization, a museum, a place of worship, or a food pantry) can count on your support forever.

Each year, grants from your fund automatically go to nonprofits you named. They know they have breathing room, thanks to your generosity.
