Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation (KWCF) makes it easy for people to do more good. We help connect donors with charities. You can set up an endowment fund with us to have a long-term impact for causes that are important to you.
You can contribute a minimum of $5,000 to start a fund with KWCF.
We then invest this money to generate annual investment returns.
Every year, your fund will grow based on market returns. Based on historical returns, we project 4.9% annual growth after fees, on average.
KWCF will then work with you to grant 4% of the value of your fund to charities in your community, every year.
Your fund will continue to grow and provide grants every year.
We will never spend your original gift, so your fund will provide a sustainable, reliable source of funding for charities.
