When a nonprofit organization builds a permanent endowment fund at Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, it ensures future stability and a foundation on which to grow.
The fund becomes part of the Community Foundation’s investment pool, and benefits from robust investment diversification and economies of scale. The organizations’ donors are assured that assets are held separately from its operating fund.
We handle all administrative responsibilities, including regulatory reporting, ensuring compliance and freeing the organization to pursue its charitable mission.
An organization endowment fund at the Community Foundation can be established by the nonprofit itself, or by an individual donor on behalf of the organization.The fund can be added to at any time, and can be funded with a wide range of assets.
