Nonprofit Endowments

Building for the Future

A dependable stream of revenue

Nonprofit organizations may create agency endowment funds under the Community Foundation. Agency endowment funds build a permanent source of steady income to stabilize and strengthen programs.


Rocky Mountain Field Institute

In 2017, RMFI created an agency endowed fund. The fund was established to provide long-term financial support of their mission to conserve and steward public lands in the Southern Rocky Mountain region. This year, Robert J. Weggel will match every dollar contributed into the fund, up to $100,000.
