JCF is dedicated to supporting nonprofits by helping to build their assets and operational capacities. By leveraging our investing capacity, stability, and economies of scale, we can serve as the community savings account and provide unusual, one-time, or venture capital for the entire nonprofit sector. We also make it easier for nonprofits to accept complex gifts and can help organizations build endowments. This allows the nonprofits to focus more time and resources on their mission.

Jefferson Community Foundation offers two kinds of Agency Funds to provide nonprofits with a simple and efficient way to invest their assets:
Agency Endowment Funds are held permanently at JCF and are invested in the long-term investment pool. They grow over time to ensure a lasting source of income for your organization. These are appropriate for organizations that are (a) confident in their current and ongoing ability to cover their annual operating budget, (b) seek to ensure their viability into the long-term future, and (c) have a significant base of major donors who would be willing to contribute to an endowment through additional gifts or estate plans.
JCF holds an account through which your agency’s fund benefits from investment into a $160 million pool held at Greater Tacoma Community Foundation. Being part of this larger pool gives your nonprofit the benefit of a diverse investment strategy, strong oversight the benefits of a diverse investment portfolio and low investment fees that typically come only with very large funds. Unlike investing via a major national corporation like Schwab or Fidelity, the fees you pay to JCF work to strengthen local nonprofit support services like workshops, trainings, etc.
