Financial and Investment Stewardship
At the Juneau Community Foundation we keep our operating costs low and adhere to our investment philosophy to get the most out of your charitable gift to the community. Each gift to the foundation reflects your trust in our ability to invest and use resources wisely. Our Finance and Investment Committee brings together expertise in finance, investments, and business to manage the Foundation’s assets and guide our annual budget.
Our committee works with the investment advisory committee and Vanguard Institutional Advisory Services to guide our investing and determine the broad allocation of assets for investment purposes.
Our Investment Philosophy is dictated by the following criteria:
SIMPLE uncomplicated investment vehicles;
TRANSPARENT investment in funds designed to replicate the broad markets;
EXPLAINABLE investments that maintain diversity without being complicated;
PATIENT investing for long-term gains and accepting of market volatility.
When you establish a fund at the Juneau Community Foundation, we work with you to determine the best investment option (long or short-term).
