The Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation offers four investment options to meet a range of philanthropic goals and time horizons. Each of our investment pools is carefully constructed and diversified across global investment opportunities to generate optimal returns while mitigating volatility.
The Endowment Pool is a long-term investment option; and capital appreciation is the primary goal.
