Fund Management

To help the endowment fund, the Foundation partners with Oregon Community Foundation (OCF), one of the premier community foundations that administers permanent charitable funds established through first from individuals, families, business and other organizations. OCF currently administers more than 2,500 permanent funds with assets of approximately $2 billion. By leveraging OCF's stewardship and long-term investment program, our endowment fund will be maintained in perpetuity to provide a stable stream of income for the Foundation.

Advice and Consultation

For more complex planned giving, the Foundation and OCF endowment management partner will provide advice and consultation to donors and their legal advisors. Contact us and we'll help you get started. For information and sample provisions to consider when making gifts to the Foundation through beneficiary designations, wills or trusts, see Tax and Legal Information.
