Our Endowment Funds

All Community Foundation of the North Okanagan Endowment Funds fall into one of three basic types:

Undesignated Funds – Smart & Caring Community Funds – where a donor has left the fund open to be used in the annual community granting process.
Designated Funds – where a donor has selected specific charitable organizations to benefit from the income on their endowment fund.
Donor Advised Funds – similar to a Private Foundation – the donor retains the ability to recommend charities to receive the annual distribution of income on the fund.

For recognition purposes many community foundations further organize endowment funds into the following categories:

Organizational Funds (or Agency Funds) – started for the benefit for a specific charitable organization with the income going to that charity each year.
Individual & Family Funds – started by and individual or family to establish a legacy that supports our community today, tomorrow… forever.
Corporate Funds – started by a local business to demonstrate their commitment to our community and provide an ongoing source of funding to our charitable sector.
Memorial Funds – started specifically to honour the memory of a loved one who has passed away.
