The nature of philanthropy is changing so charities and nonprofits need to consider new ways of planning for their future, and think of new ways to fundraise for greater sustainability.
A more sustainable charitable sector is one that is better equipped for long-term solutions. More time can be devoted to mission and impact if staff are doing less fundraising or working under the perennial stress of economic cycles or granting application deadlines.
We can have discussions with charities about ways to diversify their revenue: from Charitable Endowments, to Funds Administered for Others to Impact Investments, and more. By working with the Calgary Foundation, you gain access to our knowledgeable staff, leading investment management, and strategies to ensure funds grow for the benefit of your organization, now and into the future.
Ways to Diversify Your Charity’s Revenue Strategy
- Charitable Endowments are Funds held in perpetuity at the Calgary Foundation to provide an annual disbursement to support the annual operations of a charity.
- Long-Term Pooling Agreements are assets pooled alongside the Calgary Foundation’s primary endowment, also known as a Fund Administered for Others.
- The Canada Cultural Investment Fund provides encourages private donors to contribute to endowment Funds for not-for-profit professional arts organizations, so they can access new sources of funding in the future.
