Organization Funds

Organization Funds are the charitable assets owned and controlled by individual nonprofit organizations managed according to a long-term investment model established for The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, Inc.’s (The Corporation) own endowment. A charitable organization can participate in this commingled fund by entering into an investment management agreement. Investment management of endowment and endowment-like assets is part of The Community Foundation’s services for nonprofit organizations. The Community Foundation demonstrates its ongoing efforts to strengthen the nonprofit sector in our region.

Organizations have the comfort of knowing that their endowment-like assets are managed according to the highest industry standards and best practices, with the added assurance that The Corporation is a registered investment adviser under the Connecticut Uniform Securities Act. As a registered investment adviser, The Corporation is regulated by The State of Connecticut’s Department of Banking and adheres to its comprehensive compliance program.

How It Works

  • Your organization makes a revocable transfer of endowment-like assets to The Corporation for investment management purposes;
  • Your organization has access to global investment managers in a diversified, commingled investment pool;
  • Your organization receives distributions from your Organization Fund as you instruct; .
  • Your organization has access to online reporting, including:
    • Reporting of all transactions
    • Fund-level market evaluations, and
    • Monthly independently-derived investment performance results;
  • Your organization receives annually audited financial statements and monthly financial reporting electronically;
  • Your organization can participate in semi-annual investment performance meetings.

The list below of Organization Funds is as of December 31, 2023; new funds established in 2023 are designated in bold. For new funds established with our partner in philanthropy, the Valley Community Foundation, visit
