Non-Profit Endowments at the Door County Community Foundation
Many charities entrust the administration of their Endowment Funds to the Door County Community Foundation.
It’s a safe and responsible way to manage endowed gifts, long-term assets or operational reserves. The non-profit community also counts on the Community Foundation’s planned giving expertise to facilitate gifts into their endowments. By aggregating these assets under the umbrella of the Community Foundation, economies of scale allow for a far more diversified investment portfolio and lower investment fees than any of the charities could achieve on their own.
As a donor, you can rest assured that the principal of your gift will never be spent and can grow over time – providing a source of lasting support for the charities you care about. The Community Foundation makes it easy for you to leave a gift in your estate plans (or make a gift today) to as many of these Endowment Funds as you’d like. Simply name the Door County Community Foundation, Inc. as a beneficiary in your estate plans, and designate the specific Endowment Fund (or multiple Funds if you’d like) that should benefit from your generosity.
If a charity you care about doesn’t have an Endowment Fund at the Community Foundation, you can create one for them with your gift, or we can simply pass along your generosity to the charity directly. Our goal is to make it easy for you to give back to sustain the community we love.
