We are the steward for all funds housed at Community Foundation of the Lowcountry. Our Finance and Investment Committee, comprised of experts in the field of finance and investment, advises our board of directors, which carries the fiduciary responsibility and ensures all assets invested are consistent with the policies and objectives we've established.
We invest our assets judiciously, ensuring thoughtful and effective grantmaking today, while ensuring assets are available for grantmaking in the future.
By practicing deliberate giving and smart investing, we've increased assets from $20 million in 1994 to over $70 million today, while investing more than $82 million back into our community.
