Nonprofit Endowment Funds

Partnering with local nonprofit organizations to build sustainability, and a legacy.

We work to build a better future for everyone – including the many nonprofit organizations that call the Space Coast home. We’re dedicated to the nonprofit community’s long-term success, which is why we provide services to help the sector learn, grow, and thrive. Establishing a Nonprofit Endowment Fund with us is a simple and efficient way to build an ongoing source of income for your charitable organization.

 

We offer two types of funds for nonprofits:

  • Nonprofit Endowment Fund – Your organization establishes an endowment fund with the Community Foundation in perpetuity. An annual payout based on the Community Foundation’s spending policy is designated to your nonprofit. This option is best for organizations that want to assure donors that the endowment’s principal will remain intact or honor their specific intentions.
  • Designated Fund – Unlike the fund above which is created by a nonprofit organization, a Designated Fund is created by an individual donor to benefit a charity or charities. When setting up the fund the donor decides when and how much is granted to the charity or charities.
