Wealth Management Partners
Make the Most of Your Donation

Our board of directors has been entrusted with stewardship of the Foundation’s donations. We have partnered with three local organizations that are helping us to do more with what you donate. These trusted advisors manage a substantial portion of our non real estate portfolio of assets and provide income from interest payments, dividends, capital gains collected upon the sale of securities or other assets. Our investment time horizons are prudent and long term in nature. We maintain adequate liquidity and cash on hand to provide for both our current and anticipated long term needs.
