Endowing your nonprofit organization.

Nonprofit organizations can establish a Designated Fund or Agency Endowment with the Community Foundation. It’s a simple and efficient way to build an endowment — and help create sustainability — for your nonprofit organization. We handle investment management and the administrative responsibilities related to endowment so that your organization’s staff and volunteer hours are concentrated on fulfilling your mission.

Your donors can be sure that the endowment fund’s principal will not be spent and can grow over time, providing a source of lasting support. And the community foundation’s economies of scale provide your organization the benefits of a diverse investment portfolio and low 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. The community foundation can facilitate even the most complex planned gifts or gifts of appreciated stock or real estate.
