Donor Funding Options as Diverse as Our Community
When it comes to donor funding options offered through the Portage Foundation, there are many differences but one thing is constant: the impact will be felt today and well into the future.
Our assets are invested in a diversified portfolio, consisting primarily of equities, fixed income, and cash equivalents, which is conducive to participation in a rising market while allowing for adequate protection in a falling market. Our Investment & Finance Committee meets with PNC, our investment manager, on a quarterly basis to review asset allocation and performance. You can find more information in our Endowment Investment Objectives and Policy Statement which is available on our website; this document is reviewed and approved by the Investment & Finance Committee annually.
Whether you are supporting an existing fund, looking to create your own endowed fund, or looking ahead for estate planning needs, look to the Portage Foundation.
