Local and cause funds are aggregate funds that include small and medium-sized charities doing work in a particular community or for a specific cause. These funds are designed so that individual donors can easily make an impact across many charities. While the average large charity gets the majority of its funding from the government, smaller charities rely more heavily on donations from individuals.

More information about the charities included in a particular fund is available on their donation page.
