Creating an Endowment
ESVCF helps local 501(c)(3) organizations establish permanent endowments.
Please contact the Foundation if your organization desires to explore the creation of a permanent endowment through ESVCF.
Creating a permanent organizational fund through the Foundation relieves the nonprofit of direct responsibility for oversight of endowment assets and enables the organization to focus its efforts and often limited human resources on its mission.
Organizational funds established through ESVCF become part of the approximately $200 million master pool of the Hampton Roads Community Foundation and derive the diversification and professional oversight benefits available to large investment portfolios.
