Organizational Endowment Fund
Lasting Support Your Organization Can Count On.
An Organizational Endowment Fund is established by a nonprofit organization and managed by the Community Foundation of Central Georgia to generate annual income for the benefit of the nonprofit organization. That means, as an organization, your donors are building a fund to provide perpetual support for your nonprofit.
The Foundation is committed to helping your organization build its endowment. By offering our expertise in planned giving and marketing your fund to your organization’s donors, we become your partner in growing your endowment.
At the Community Foundation, funds are pooled for investment purposes, which allows your organization to have access to high-quality investment management.
What are the Benefits of an Organizational Endowment Fund?
The Community Foundation of Central Georgia will work directly with your nonprofit organization in the development and distribution management of your fund. Our staff has the experience and training to expedite planned and other complex gifts.
- CFCG serves as your nonprofit organization’s partner to help build its endowment by developing a planned giving program or creating an email marketing campaign for your endowment fund.
- Our staff handles all administrative duties associated with the fund.
- The Finance 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.

Hear From Donors
It was important to the CGTC Trustees that our endowment be placed with a local organization that would both benefit from our investment and keep the funds in our community. The Trustees were drawn to CFCG for its focus on servant leadership and its established programs which give back to the community. CFCG’s stewardship of the College’s endowment has provided a tremendous return on CGTC Foundation’s investment.- Tonya McClure, Assistant Vice President of Institutional Advancement at Central Georgia Technical College, Central Georgia Technical College Foundation Fund
The Community Foundation of Central Georgia manages money well and provides other vital services to Historic Macon Foundation. CFCG’s investment performance is very competitive with the private market and its staff can process any type of gift we receive—a task we will never have the staff capacity or expertise to handle ourselves. It’s an added bonus to know that the small fees we pay will remain in the community to help other organizations. Additionally, having our endowment at CFCG allows its staff to educate prospective donors about our mission, and to share with other organizations and causes we care about, too.- Josh Rogers, Former Executive Director, Historic Macon Foundation
The Community Foundation of Central Georgia understands philanthropy from both the donors’ and the grantees’ perspectives, and CFCG staff work to address the needs of both. They work to develop programs—scholarships, grants, endowments or other means—that satisfy donors’ wishes while enhancing the community. They help us meet short term needs and plan for the future.- Thomas Jones, Former Director, Middle Georgia Regional Library
We make distributions from the endowment fund annually for its upkeep— things like a new roof or a security system, repairs, whatever’s needed—and the endowment fund allows us to do that without sacrificing our community projects. CFCG manages our endowment fund so that we can spend our time and effort on early childhood literacy and school readiness. Our endowment fund has given Junior League members a vehicle for supporting our long-term goals.- Kathleen Medlin, Past President, Junior League of Macon
