Create an Agency Fund

An agency fund is a designated fund established by a nonprofit organization at Central Carolina Community Foundation for the benefit of the nonprofit.

The Community Foundation assists you in creating a fund that provides long-term operating or programming income. When you place your agency’s fund with the Community Foundation it becomes a part of our pool of funds, which is professionally managed using a diversified strategy. The Foundation's economies of scale offer an investment program that small and mid-size nonprofits simply cannot afford to duplicate without at least several million dollars in assets.

We can confidently handle planned gifts involving complex assets, gift annuities and trust arrangements. In addition, your organization benefits from exposure to our family of donors and fund advisors. We share your story with our local philanthropic community and encourage them to support your agency's vision. Overall, the work we do on your behalf reduces your administrative time, allowing your staff to focus on your mission.
