Organization Funds

Your nonprofit can help secure its future by setting up an organization fund. Your reserve or endowed assets will be professionally managed, and can provide income for operating expenses or other critical needs.

View a list of organization funds.

We acknowledge gifts and handle accounting and audits, allowing your board to spend less time on money management.

Working with our staff and your organization’s leadership, you will decide:

  • Whether you want to endow part or all of the assets in the fund;
  • Whether you want to schedule regular withdrawals from the fund back to your organization;
  • Who within your organization will have the authority to request withdrawals;
  • Whether you want contributors to be able to donate online through our secure website.

You may establish your fund with cash, stock or other assets, and add to it whenever you want. Donors may contribute directly to the fund.

To get started, contact our executive director.
