Organizational Endowment Funds

An Organizational Endowment Fund is a permanent fund managed by the Community Foundation of Central Georgia that generates annual income for a not-for-profit organization. In addition to providing strong financial management, the Community Foundation also works to help the organizations build these endowments.

Benefits

  • CFCG accepts many types of assets as additions to your fund such as cash, stocks, bonds, real estate, LLP and LLC shares, and other unusual assets.
  • CFCG will serve as your organization’s partner to help build its endowment fund. CFCG’s staff has the experience and training to expedite planned and other complex gifts.
  • CFCG’s staff will handle all administrative and financial management duties associated with the fund to alleviate this burden from your staff.
  • The investment committee of CFCG’s Board of Directors monitors the work of the investment managers, freeing time for your board to focus on planning and development.
  • Separating your endowment from other assets ensures resources will be available to meet future needs of the organization.
  • Pooled funds allow for less expensive access to high-quality investment management.

Services

  • Support in developing a planned giving program, including an email marketing campaign for your endowment fund and access to planned giving resources.
  • Annual Updates from CFCG, if requested, to keep your organization's Board of Directors aware of the benefits, performance and services available for your endowment fund.
  • Annually promote your endowment fund to CFCG donors, by listing your organization’s endowment fund and the other agency endowment funds they can support through the Community Foundation.

Fees

  • An minimum annual administrative fee of $500/year or 1%, whichever is greater, plus actual investment management fees will be charged to the fund quarterly.

Eligibility

  • Any 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
  • An Organizational Endowment Fund requires a $10,000.00 opening balance, excluding pledges.
  • Following the establishment of the fund, contributions can be made at any time.
