Investment Performance

The Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation offers three 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 attempt to generate optimal returns while mitigating volatility.


Endowment Pool

The Endowment Pool is a long-term investment option; and capital appreciation is the primary goal.
