How it Works
Your organization signs a simple letter of direction, which establishes the fund.
Your organization transfers assets valued at $10,000 or more to us.
We set up a fund in the name of your organization or in any other name you choose.
Your organization receives electronic quarterly fund statements.
Anyone can add to the fund established for your organization at any time and in any amount. We will provide gift receipts to all donors.
We handle all the administrative details for a fee based on the fund’s market value.
It's a safe and simple way for your nonprofit organization to establish an endowment that can grow over time providing a source of lasting support.
Our economics of scale provide your organization the benefits of a diverse investment portfolio and low investment fees that typically come only with very large funds.
Your organization’s regular donors can leave a bequest through the Community Foundation to benefit your organization forever and create a personal legacy.
Donors can receive tax benefits each time a gift is given.
We can facilitate even the most complex planned gifts.
We handle investment management and the administrative responsibilities related to endowment so you can concentrate on fulfilling your mission.
We will provide you with electronic quarterly fund statements, which report the market value of the fund, gifts received, investment returns and grants distributed.
