Most funds managed by Northfield Shares are endowments, meaning that the principal is retained and only the income is spent. Named funds can be created under any of the types noted below, but require investment of $10,000 or more. Smaller contributions can be made to the Operating Fund or Community Builders Fund of the Northfield Shares Fund.
The common fund types are listed below; others can be created to meet more specific needs.
Northfield Shares will invest the cash or the proceeds from sale of the other assets as they determine. Regular reports are made to the donor regarding the present value of the fund and any transactions that have occurred.
Funds that are established by bequest become active only on the death of the donor and/or other beneficiaries. Depending on the initial agreement, the Northfield Shares Board or the heirs of the donor then assume responsibility for the use of the income.
