Step 3: Designate Successor Advisor or Charitable Beneficiary

You may designate one or more individuals as a Successor Advisor to succeed you in advising on the fund upon the death of the surviving Advisor, or you may name one or more charities as the Charitable Beneficiary of the balance of fund. If no Successor Advisor or Charitable Beneficiary is elected, The Fuller Foundation will award grants consistent with your last advised purpose.

Successor Advisor

You may choose to retain assets in the fund, and Successor Advisors will equally share fund administration, or you may choose to create separate funds and divide assets.


Charitable Beneficiary

You may choose one or more charitable beneficiaries and designate a specific percentage each charity should receive of the remaining balance. If no percentages are determined, The Fuller Foundation will disburse funds evenly among the listed charities.

Step 4: Recommend an Investment Option

Recommend how to allocate your contributions by choosing among the available options. If no strategy is selected below, 100% of the fund balance will be allocated to the Fuller Money Market Pool. The combined total must equal 100%.
