Investment Management

The Community Foundation's investment objective is to earn a return that allows donors to make meaningful grants while maintaining their charitable giving fund's future giving power.

 

The Community Foundation offers a variety of investment options designed to meet a range of philanthropic goals and time horizons. Each of our investment portfolios is carefully constructed and diversified across global investment opportunities to maximize return and minimize volatility.

Detailed descriptions of our Investment Portfolio Options and Investment Policy are available. You can also view our Investment Portfolio Returns. Investment fees are dependent on the investment portfolio selected. To view answers to other commonly asked investment questions, click here.
