Announcing an upgraded fundholder access portal
Beginning March 30, 2021, the below Access My Account Online button will access a new fundholder portal. The first time you log in to your fund, enter your email and click “Create or Reset Your Password.” A reset your password link will be emailed to you.
Here is an instructional video demonstrating the new donor portal.
With your donor advised fund, you can support any 501(c)(3) public charity in the US, including governmental, educational, and religious institutions. Rest assured that the Long Beach Community Foundation (LBCF) will exercise due diligence to make sure grants from your fund are given to organizations that have met 501(c)(3) IRS requirements.
In some cases, LBCF may need to contact you and/or the suggested grant recipient for additional information before approving the grant.
