We offer three kinds of charitable funds to best meet the needs of donors with different time horizons.
PERMANENTLY ENDOWED FUNDS PROVIDE LONG-TERM SUPPORT
For those who take a long-term approach to philanthropy, an endowment offers longevity and stability. Endowments are permanently invested with only a portion of the fund used annually for grantmaking. The remaining funds are reinvested for the future, so long after you’re gone, the endowment will continue to support the causes you care about.

Permanent Endowment Minimum – $10,000
Fee – 1% Annual
QUASI-ENDOWED FUNDS PROVIDE DEEP IMPACT AND CONTINUED GROWTH
The quasi-endowed fund was designed for people who want to enjoy the excitement of giving larger grants now, along with the benefit of investing for future growth. These funds are invested in the markets to keep them growing, but there’s no limit on the amount that can be granted from your fund to the organizations you choose, as long as the balance remains above $50,000 for the first three years.

CHARITABLE DISTRIBUTION FUNDS PROVIDE IMMEDIATE IMPACT
A charitable distribution fund is ideal for people who want to support a short-term project, or take action quickly on an identified need. Charitable distribution funds are not invested in the markets, so the entire balance is available to grant to the charity of your choice at any time. Charitable distributions funds are NOT invested.
