Community Group Endowment Funds
Endowment funds provide certainty of income
Most not-for-profit organisations rely on a range of fund-raising approaches in order to make ends meet – grant applications, donations, member contributions, sale of services etc. But none of these is guaranteed and reliable. An endowment fund however provides certainty of income – and better still, it can be spent where the need is greatest, and at the discretion of trustees and management.
Build a long-term reliable funding streams
Nelson Bays Community Foundation (“NBCF”) is not just a grant-maker. We help Charitable Groups to build a long-term reliable funding stream, by setting up an endowment fund.
The following groups have established relationships with NBCF to support their long term funding needs:
- Brook Waimarama Sanctuary Trust
- Big Brothers Big Sisters Nelson
- NBCF Environment Fund – (Funding for Environment Sector groups)
- Nelson Anaesthesia Education & Research Fund
- ERRV Special Needs Foundation Inc
As the capital accumulates in the Fund, so will the annual distributions back to the community groups. These distributions may be used entirely at the discretion of the community group, which means that in the future they will have to spend less time chasing funding, and more time focusing on the valuable contributions they make to our community. You can help by contributing to their Endowment Fund.
