Nonprofits: Secure your future; establish an agency endowment

An agency fund benefits a specific nonprofit organization by providing perpetual support. It is a simple, efficient way to develop sustainability for your organization. We handle investment management and administrative responsibilities related to the endowment.

You work on fulfilling your mission.

Your donors can make bequests or other planned gifts through the Community Foundation to benefit your organization perpetually and create a personal legacy. We can facilitate even the most complex gift transactions, including gifts of appreciated stock, life insurance or real estate. We also offer charitable gift annuities that benefit your fund.

2 steps to establish your fund. Really.

Determine how much you would like to invest. Work with our staff to set up a fund in the name of your agency.

That’s it.

We’ll handle all the administrative details, including investment management and tax receipting. You’ll receive a regular fund statement. Your gift is placed into an endowment that is invested over time. Earnings from your fund are yours to use for your organization’s charitable work. Donors may add to your fund at any time.

Collective impact: Nurses supporting nurses

The Michigan Nurses Foundation (MNS) has an endowment fund that awards research grants and scholarships, as well as supports nurses battling addiction.

Our Community Foundation's stewardship of its endowment fund is making it possible for MNS to do even more for current and aspiring Michigan nurses.

Our money is working harder for us than ever before. We were able to double the amount of scholarships we’re giving to nurses because of that.”

– Jesusa Vasquez, president of the Michigan Nurses Foundation
