Our Fees

Administrative fees support our ability to carry out our mission on behalf of all donors for the benefit of our community.

Administrative Fees

Our administrative fees support the overall mission of the Community Foundation. This comprises staff time involved in managing charitable funds, assisting with grant requests, and researching community needs and causes that are important to donors, the publication of an annual report, preparation of an annual independent audit, oversight of investment performance and other functions to ensure the Community Foundation’s ability to carry out its broader purpose. Board members serve without compensation.

Spend-down funds with an average balance of $10,000 or more are exempt from the additional yearly fee.

Future Funds

No administrative fees are assessed until the fund balance reaches the minimum endowment level of $10,000 ($15,000 minimum for a scholarship endowment).
