As we move forward into the new year, it’s important to thank all the directors, volunteers, and donors who have helped us get to where we are today. The Foundation enters 2021 with great enthusiasm for its mission to help disadvantaged kids in the Spokane and Coeur D’ Alene region. Last year was a challenging year for all of us, but due to a lack of resources, it was especially difficult for disadvantaged children. However, as we have turned the page in 2021, the future looks brighter than ever.
A Message From The Board Chairman
The Foundation is fortunate to have incredible capital market managers that partner with us to consistently exceed market expectations. To maximize the long-term impact of your generous donations, we recently adopted a new asset allocation model incorporating modern portfolio theory that is benchmarked to the Yale Foundation model.
Our Investments and Property Management Committee oversees the stewardship of these activities, meeting monthly to review potential investments and report changes to the Board. They also review the long-term investment policy and asset allocation on an annual basis to ensure we are able to continue with our mission.
