Home What We Do Manage Investments Investment Committee

The responsibility for managing the investment portfolio is vested in the Community Foundation’s Board of Directors through the Investment Committee. This committee works closely with professional staff and investment advisors to set policy, establish performance benchmarks and continually monitor the performance of the Community Foundation’s portfolio against these policies and benchmarks. The investment committee meets regularly with the Community Foundation’s investment consultant to discuss performance and investment strategies, and review managers.
