The Shade Partnership Fund (SPF) is a philanthropic group focused on partnering with existing non-profits to help them create positive, sustainable change. It was founded in 2007 by graduates of Wheaton College (IL) and is overseen by an internally elected board of managers.
In response to Christ's love and His call to empower those in need, we resolve, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to build up the Church through prayer, service and financial assistance.
The group is self-financed and operates as a donor-advised fund at a public charity. This structure allows SPF to focus its time and efforts on researching and funding great organizations doing meaningful work. All grants are recommended by the donor-advised fund's advisors and are made at the discretion of the public charity that sponsors the donor-advised fund.
