Cost Recovery

Calgary Foundation pays for service and investment management costs by recovering those costs from all its funds.

The recovery of costs is calculated and charged monthly on the prior month’s ending market value. Policies regarding cost recovery are subject to ongoing review and change by The Foundation’s Board of Directors.

NOTE:
Permanent Endowment Funds are Funds wherein CF retains all capital contributions in perpetuity.

The President has the authority to allow a Fund to be created with less than the fund minimum provided the donor has a plan in place to grow the Fund to the required minimum.
