An Agency Fund is a cost-effective and easy way for nonprofit organizations to invest their reserve money and invest in their future. Donors can be confident that the fund will be professionally managed to build a reliable source of continuing support for their good work.

How it Works

The Community Foundation’s scale of investments provides your organization with the benefits of a diverse investment portfolio and low investment fees that typically come only with large funds. Nonprofits can use an agency fund to invest their reserves or establish and build an endowment to support the long-term dreams of the organization.

  • We work with nonprofits to learn about their organization’s needs and can set up an endowed (principal is guarded from spending) or fully expendable agency fund in the name of your nonprofit organization. Your fund is pooled to take advantage of the Community Foundation’s investment options.
  • The minimum to open an Agency Fund is $25,000. Your board determines how much to contribute for the initial investment to establish your fund. Your organization or donors may then add to the fund any time.
  • We work with your staff to understand the nuances of accepting complex asset gifts to your fund, like stock, trust, and bequests.

Simply put, the Amador Community Foundation improves the quality of life for the citizens of Amador County today and for generations to come. 

We connect local generosity with local needs.
