Nonprofit investing

The Community Foundation offers nonprofit organizations in the Mid-South an opportunity to invest alongside the Foundation’s other assets in its diversified family of investment pools. The result is the best possible investment solution for an agency's long-term financial assets.

Nonprofit organization funds

Nonprofits can choose the Community Foundation to manage their reserve, capital, or endowment funds. Benefits include:

  • Our long-term track record of investment returns,

  • Outstanding diversification and risk mitigation in our investment portfolios,

  • The expert advice of Gerber/Taylor Associates, Inc., our investment consultants,

  • The flexibility to move between investment options quickly and at no additional cost, and

Nonprofits may access any or all of their funds at any time. There is never any penalty for liquidity. All agencies have access to their fund information online. Nonprofit partners may also change investment pools at the end of any month.  

Agency donors may contribute directly to their fund in a variety of forms, including publicly traded or privately held stock, real estate, life insurance, retirement plans, and charitable remainder trusts.
