The Community Endowment Fund
The CEF was established in 1988 to serve the dynamic non-profit, charity community with capital funding and emergency assistance. The Fund is provides funding from the United Way Sault Ste. Marie and district’s investment income to worthy community projects under 5 pillars which are: social services, education, arts, sports and health care.
Leaving a Legacy
The Community Endowment Fund is an excellent way to achieve your personal charitable objectives, while making a sound investment into what benefits you and your family today and will serve the community in the futures.
A Living Legacy
When you make a gift to the Community Endowment Fund, the capital remains in tact. Only the net investment income earned is used, thus perpetuating your gift to provide help and hope to people in need for generations. Assets of the fund are professionally managed by the Community Endowment Fund. The assets are invested to achieve a balance between long-term security of capital, asset growth and a level of annual income that will allow for funding of worthwhile community programs and services.
Making a Planned Gift
You can invest in a specific area through a Donor Designated Fund or make a general donation as defined by the mandate of the fund for community wide benefit by:
- Cash donation
- Bequest in a will
- Charitable life insurance policies
- Gift of securities
