elevate your giving

investment management

Each donor in the ECCF family has unique philanthropic goals. To achieve them, we have multiple investment strategies available that take into consideration your values, risk tolerance and time-frame for granting funds. We seek the best possible returns to maximize the charitable dollars available to make a difference in the community, now and into the future.

ECCF’s investment pools are managed by an expert Investment Committee. The Committee reviews the performance of each pool on a quarterly basis and adjusts, as needed, under the guiding principles of our investment policy.

investment fees
  • Investment fees are made up of third-party investment management fees and an investment oversight fee and vary depending on the investment you choose for your fund. Total investment fees range from .14% – 54% and we report all investment returns net of fees. Learn more about Investment Options and Foundation Fees.
