Agency Fund Agreement Worksheet

Agency Funds are established by nonprofits to support their charitable needs. NCCF handles the management and stewardship of their charitable assets to enable a stable source of revenue for the nonprofit at a low cost. This frees the nonprofit and its board of directors to concentrate on the pursuit of the nonprofit’s charitable mission.
The Agency Fund Worksheet is used to create the Agreement establishing the Fund with NCCF. Please fill out the information below. Questions? Call our Philanthropic Services staff at (860) 626-1245.

Fund Information

Fund Type: Endowed or Non-Endowed (expendable)

Endowments/Endowed funds are permanent funds established to carry out your organization's philanthropic intentions in perpetuity. The fund is invested for growth, and the amount available for grants each year is based on NCCF's Board approved annual Community Distribution Policy (usually around 5% net of fees of the fund's 3 year average market value). This fund is intended to make distributions to your organization in perpetuity. 

Non-Endowed funds are expendable. These funds permit grant distributions in any amount (minimum of $250 per grant) at any time. A non-endowed fund may be converted to an endowed fund, but an endowed fund may not be converted to a non-endowed fund. There us no annual distribution limit. If the fund assets are exhausted, the fund will terminate.
Pass-Through funds–because they are temporary and short in duration–are held in a Money Market account. These funds are for the short term, with the entire fund likely to be distributed within 12 months.

Fund Statements are posted to the Fund Advisor Portal quarterly. Individuals designated by your nonprofit's Board will receive an email notification when quarterly statements are posted–usually about four weeks after the quarter's end.
Please indicate the name, address and email of up to three individuals whom your Board will designate to receive quarterly statement notifications.
Note: Any changes to the distribution list must be approved by your Board with proper supporting evidence- (minutes or Board resolution).
