Types of Funds Available to Nonprofits
Agency Endowed Fund: An Agency Fund may be established by a nonprofit to provide a long-term, dependable source of operating revenue and ensure financial stability well into the future. An endowment is a permanent fund in which contributions may not be spent but rather are invested to generate a stream of income for the organization. They are gifts that keep on giving year after year. Read More.
Acorn Fund: An Acorn Fund may be established as the first step to an endowed or permanent fund. An Acorn Fund may be opened with $2,000 and the nonprofit pledges to make annual contributions until the fund reaches the endowed level (currently $10,000). Learn More.
Agency Advised Fund (also called an Agency Investment Fund): An agency advised fund allows a nonprofit full access to the balance of the original gift and all future earnings from the gift. This fund is a non-endowed fund, meaning both the principal and the earnings are available for use by the nonprofit to support its mission. This makes it ideal for operating funds, building improvements, capital expenditures and reserves. Read More.
Designated Fund: A designated fund may be established by a donor to support a specific charity or multiple charities. It is wonderful idea to create endowments benefiting your favorite charities. The charitable organizations receive an annual distribution from their endowment and will receive the annual distribution for perpetuity. The endowments not only provide a reliable source of income to these organizations but also serve as a convenient way for donors to make contributions. Learn More.
Capitol Campaign Fund:
Pass Through Fund: A Pass Through Fund may be established by an organization or a group of citizens for a specific fundraising project that meets a charitable purpose or civic need. For example, a Pass Through Fund was established for the Menomonie Skate Park and the Menomonie Dog Park. Contributions made to the fund are tax deductible; the Foundation handles all of the donor acknowledgments, fund accounting, and pays the expenses of the project. Pass Through Funds are expected to be short term.
