Investment Policy

The Foundation seeks to insure that funds donated to the Foundation are intended, first of all, to be used only for charitable purposes, that they would be productive of a reasonable return of income over a period of time that will help grow the Foundation's endowment, and that the Foundation is actively seeking additional contributions. The Foundation has chosen Wells Fargo Advisors as its' investment advisor.

How can you contribute?

The Foundation is not supported by tax dollars. The Board realizes that the success of growing the Latah County Community Foundation will depend upon the participation of many individuals in the process of strengthening the Foundation's resource base. Here are ways that you can make a significant difference:

• Cash Donations: Money gifts in any amount are welcome. If you wish, you may make a gift in honor of a relative or a friend.

• Life Insurance: Consult your insurance agent about a policy assigning the Foundation as all or part of the beneficiary.

• Legacy: Consider including the Foundation in your will.

• Charitable Trust: Consult your attorney about setting up a trust with the Foundation named as a beneficiary. You can continue to receive income from it as long as you live.
