Set Up an Agency Fund and Build a Sustainable Financial Future
The many advantages of an agency fund.
Prospective Agency Fund Holders
An agency fund helps nonprofit organizations build long-term assets and serves as a home for reserve funds. Agencies with agency funds enjoy low-cost investment options and third-party oversight of their assets. Plus, agencies can access Greater Horizons' expertise by connecting with our philanthropic advisors.
How an Agency Fund Works:
- Quickly and easily set up an agency fund with one simple document.
- Choose how to invest the fund's assets.
- Greater Horizons receives contributions from the agency to the fund, and Greater Horizons processes grants from the fund back to the agency.
- Staff and volunteers who oversee the agency's finances can view the fund balance, contributions and grants 24/7 through an online donor portal.
If you would like to speak with a Greater Horizons representative to guide you through the process, contact Philanthropic Advisor Nicole Stuke at email@example.com or 816.627.3404.
