You can implement your spending policy and administer Distributions to your Funds using CommunitySuite.

Distributions allow you to create monthly, quarterly or yearly disbursements into the spendable balances of any funds held at your Community Foundation. The most common distribution types are calculated based on the average balance per quarter, but you can create and run different distribution types using a percentage of current assets based on trailing quarters or years or a straight percentage.

You can have one or many different types of Distribution formulas. The spendable balances will be calculated according to your spending policy, if the resulting spendable balance remains unused, you can clear the amounts as needed.
