History

The Community Endowment Fund was established in 1988 to serve the broad non profit charity community with capital funding and emergency assistance.

A Living Legacy

When you make a gift to the Community Endowment Fund, the capital remains in tact. Only the net investment income earned is used, thus perpetuating your gift to provide help and hope to people in need for generations. Assets of the fund are professionally managed by the Community Endowment Fund. The assets are invested to achieve a balance between long-term security of capital, asset growth and a level of annual income that will allow for funding of worthwhile community programs and services.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grants

The Community Endowment Fund is committed to provide funding from our investment income to worthy community projects under 5 pillars:

Social Services, Education, Arts, Sports and Health Care

Leaving a Legacy

The Community Endowment Fund is an excellent way to achieve your personal charitable objectives, while making a sound investment into what benefits you and your family today and will serve the community in the futures.
