We are the stewards of more than 500 funds as well as the civic endowment created by all of our donors’ funds and gifts. Each fund is subject to monthly investment and administrative fees as well as an annual fee. We keep fees and costs for fund administration and investment low through economies of scale.
The Foundation’s investment managers each assess charges to cover custody of assets, investment management, and trading activity. Investment manager fees are assessed each month based on current market value. Investment performance results are reported net of investment management fees. Investment Management Fee is projected at 0.90% per year.
Administrative fees are charged by the Foundation to help cover the cost of operations. Fees vary depending on the type and size of the fund. Administrative fees are charged monthly and withdrawn from the fund’s assets.
Following is our current administrative fee schedule:
- Discretionary, designated, field of interest and donor advised funds - 1.00% *
- Scholarship funds - 1.95% *
- Agency funds - 0.50%
* The fee is 0.80% for funds with assets above $5 million.
A minimum fee of $250 per year is drawn on all funds.
