I. The Pillars of Governance Excellence in Nonprofit Investing

Your Board’s Fiduciary Duties

A nonprofit board member serves an essential role in the oversight and responsibility of the organization. In this role, you have a fiduciary obligation to ensure you manage your organization’s investment programs prudent and cost-effectively. This responsibility includes safeguarding the organization against conflicts of interest, establishing a solid investment oversight group, implementing and maintaining appropriate documents and nonprofit investment policies, and conducting thorough due diligence to guarantee that financial resources are utilized effectively and ethically.

Effective Decision-Making with an Investment Committee

While your board has a fiduciary responsibility for your nonprofit’s assets, investment oversight authority is often delegated to a finance or investment committee. An Investment Committee aids a board in fulfilling its fiduciary duties by ensuring efficient, transparent asset management and decision-making aligned with the organization's best interests and ethical standards. A Committee Charter is a crucial element of a successful oversight group and outlines the committee's authority, roles, and responsibilities.

Sample Investment Committee membership for a nonprofit

Your Investment Committee will generally be a team of 3-7 qualified members with varied backgrounds responsible for drafting policies and procedures, managing the relationship with the investment advisor, reviewing investment performance, monitoring investment program compliance, and reporting results to the board. Quarterly committee meetings, ideally before board meetings, are an effective way to ensure effective decision-making. The committee members overseeing an organization's investment program should diligently conduct an annual review of critical fiduciary oversight components. This includes ensuring adherence to a responsible spending policy, compliance with the Investment Policy Statement, evaluating the reasonableness of investment fees, and maintaining well-organized and accessible investment records.

Critical Nonprofit Investment Policy Documents

For several reasons, substantial investment-related policy documents are vital for your nonprofit organization. Firstly, they provide consistency and continuity in the face of staff and board member turnover. When individuals leave or join your organization, these documents ensure that the organization's investment strategy remains stable and coherent. Secondly, they are crucial for documenting decision-making processes. Documentation is essential for internal record-keeping and for demonstrating due diligence and strategic thinking to external stakeholders. This level of documentation builds trust among stakeholders, including donors, who often seek reassurance that their contributions are being managed responsibly and effectively. Furthermore, transparent investment policies promote openness about how funds are allocated and managed, which is essential for maintaining public trust. Lastly, these policies ensure that strategic decisions are not ad hoc but aligned with your organization's long-term goals and mission. 

The Investment Policy Statement 

A well-written Investment Policy Statement (IPS) is the cornerstone of any successful investment program. Serving as a clear roadmap, it guides your organization toward its goals while ensuring adherence to fiduciary responsibilities. Amid fluctuating market conditions, variable asset returns, diverse expectations, and ongoing risk uncertainties, this IPS is crucial for steering your organization's long-term investment journey.

Your IPS should address these essential items:

Clear definition of duties and responsibilities: Identify the different parties and their responsibilities in overseeing the assets. Typically, organizations will outline the roles of the board of directors, investment committee, investment manager, and custodian.

Investment strategy and allocation: Outline strategic asset allocation focusing on diversification, specific asset class guidelines with allocation ranges and targets, and the rebalancing policy to maintain strategic target allocations. A well-crafted IPS is flexible enough to respond to changing market environments and ensures changes can be made without a lengthy approval process. 

Management and performance evaluation: Establish criteria for selecting nonprofit investment advisors and strategies as wells as a framework for periodic performance reviews and benchmarking.

Define your spending policy: Lay out how you'll determine sustainable spending rates, the methodology behind these calculations, and the implementation of your spending policy.

Other Important Policies

Conflict of Interest Policy: A well-written Conflict of Interest Policy provides security to your organization. It helps manage personal conflicts of interest among organization leaders, protecting your organization from a loss in reputation, donor gifts, and potential legal action. Your policy should clearly define what constitutes a conflict of interest and outline procedures for disclosure and resolution. Board members must be transparent about potential conflicts and avoid voting on matters where they have a financial interest.

Spending Policy: A Spending Policy helps ensure that members of your organization’s oversight group are on the same page when taking distributions from your endowment or other funds. It governs the discretion over distributions, sets the account's spending rate, and defines qualified expenditures. The policy should include clear financial goals for the account, a formula for calculating and capping the spending rate, and specifics on who has authority over taking distributions and their timing. Additionally, it should delineate eligible expenses.

II. Types of Nonprofit Investment Accounts

Aligning Asset Pools With Your Objectives

The Bucket Approach to Structuring Investment Accounts

Are you looking to align your organization's assets with its needs and goals? The first step is to create a structure for your assets that mirrors your organization's unique requirements. Nonprofit organizations often manage various types of pools of assets to support their operations, initiatives, and long-term sustainability. These asset pools can vary widely in nature and purpose, and each must have a dedicated investment policy and strategy. Such policies and strategies should be tailored to reflect the specific time horizon, objectives, spending needs, and capacity for the volatility of each asset pool. This careful planning ensures that the assets are managed effectively to support your organization's goals while maintaining financial stability. Each type of asset pool may have its own set of financial management policies, accounting rules, and legal requirements, making their individualized management and oversight critical for the nonprofit's success and compliance with legal and donor requirements.

Here’s an overview of some common types of nonprofit accounts:

Operating Reserves 

Liquid funds that are readily available to cover emergency spending requirements

These funds are a savings account or a pool of funds set aside to cover the costs of unexpected expenses or to sustain your organization during periods of reduced revenue. Think of this account as your financial safety net or ‘rainy day fund,’ ideally holding at least 3 to 6 months’ worth of operating expenses. Operating reserves help ensure your financial stability.

Board-Designated Fund 

A fund that provides income that meets target spending and long-term objectives

Once your Operating Reserves are in place, consider this account for meeting target spending and long-term goals. Funds here are generally unrestricted, and the board decides on their usage, such as future projects, a new initiative, or long-term goals, guided by specific spending policies.

Donor-Restricted Fund

Fund with donor-imposed restrictions that provide income to meet target spending

These are funds that have been restricted by donors for specific uses. Your organization must use these funds exclusively for the intended programs or projects as the donor dictates.


A steady, long-term source of funding that comes from using only the generated income or appreciation

A nonprofit endowment is a pool of funds intended to be invested to generate ongoing income for your nonprofit organization. It is generally expected to be a perpetual account, providing consistent financial support over the long term. An endowment is typically set up with the stipulation that the principal amount remains indefinitely intact. Only the investment income or the appreciation of the principal is utilized for the organization's activities, ensuring that the fund continues to support your organization's mission perpetually.

Building or Capital Fund 

A fund that meets specific needs by an expected date

These funds are allocated specifically for long-term capital investments, typically including purchasing, constructing, or renovating buildings and facilities. Additionally, they can be utilized for the acquisition of major equipment. Naturally sourced from capital campaigns, these funds represent temporary accounts that are earmarked for particular expenditures related to capital projects.

Aligning Investment Policies with Each Fund’s Objectives

Once your organization has established the appropriate funds, such as endowments, operating reserves, or designated funds, developing distinct investment policies and strategies for each becomes crucial. Creating nonprofit investment policies is vital because each fund type has unique characteristics and purposes, which demand tailored approaches to investment. An investment policy statement, as explained previously, serves as a guiding document that outlines the goals, risk tolerance, time horizon, and spending needs specific to each fund. For instance, an endowment fund that provides long-term financial stability would likely have a different investment strategy than a short-term operating reserve, which needs to be more liquid and less volatile.

The investment strategy, derived from the policy, is the practical application of these guidelines. It involves selecting the right mix of assets (like stocks, bonds, real estate, and others) that align with the fund’s objectives and constraints. A well-crafted strategy considers the fund's time horizon – whether the assets are needed soon or can be invested over decades – and the organization's overall financial goals and capacity for risk. For instance, a building fund for a future capital project might prioritize growth and capital appreciation, while an operating reserve might focus on preserving capital and liquidity. These tailored policies and strategies help maximize the returns relative to the risk taken and ensure that the funds are available and aligned with the organization's objectives and needs.

III. Developing an Investment Strategy for Your Nonprofit

Nonprofit organizations face unique challenges in developing endowment investment strategies and balancing financial sustainability with mission alignment. While there's no one-size-fits-all formula for your investment strategy, applying fundamental investment principles is critical to developing a practical approach.

Key Investment Principles for Nonprofits

  1. Clarity and Understanding: The Foundation of a Successful Investment Strategy

    A crucial aspect of investment oversight is transparency. As dedicated investment advisors serving nonprofits and endowments, we frequently encounter organizations needing help to grasp their current investment portfolios, often due to complex and poorly structured allocations. This complexity can lead to ineffective diversification and breach of fiduciary responsibility, which may conflict with Investment Policy Statement (IPS) guidelines. Ensuring that your portfolio is well-constructed and clearly understood by the committee is vital to combat this. Frequent reporting and regular portfolio review sessions for committee members can also be instrumental in maintaining clarity and understanding. A well-informed committee can make more effective decisions and provide better oversight, ensuring alignment with the nonprofit's goals.
  1. The Power of Asset Allocation
    Asset allocation, the blend of stocks, bonds, cash, and potentially alternative assets, is the most critical factor in your investment outcomes. It's essential to strike a balance between potential risks and rewards. Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT), backed by robust academic research, suggests that a well-constructed portfolio can maximize returns for an acceptable level of risk. However, this is not just about scientific calculations; it also involves careful judgment and experience to align with your organization's goals and risk tolerance. 

    Consider a nonprofit dedicated to providing emergency relief that may require quick access to funds. Their asset allocation should prioritize liquidity and stability, such as a higher proportion of cash or short-term, low-risk bonds. Contrast this with a foundation focusing on long-term endowment growth, which might adopt a balanced mix of stocks and bonds. The stocks provide growth potential to outpace inflation and grow the fund, while the bonds offer stability to ensure funds for annual spending needs are available. 

    For a clearer picture, check out a Sample Asset Allocation Model showcasing how time horizon, volatility, and performance influence the ideal asset mix. Download “3 Key Components of an Optimal Asset Allocation Policy” for a deeper understanding of tailoring an asset allocation to your nonprofit's needs.
  1. Keep Costs in Check
    In the unpredictable investing world, controlling investment expenses is a crucial aspect you can influence. These costs directly impact your long-term results. Minimizing investment fees maximizes the funds available for your mission. It's critical to scrutinize all investment-related expenses, ensuring they are in line with your organization’s interests:  
    • Custodian Charges - Assess the fees for asset custody and trading. Aim for these to be minimal or non-existent, as these charges have decreased dramatically over the last ten years.
    • Investment Advisor Fees - Understand how your advisor charges for their services, including investment advice, asset management, client service, and reporting. Ensure the fee structure incentivizes the advisor to prioritize your organization's financial goals. 
    • Investment Manager Expenses - Scrutinize the fees associated with your investment strategies. Compare these costs to industry peers to ensure you pay the appropriate amount. Lower costs can lead to substantial savings over time, which is especially important for long-term investments.
  2. Effective Performance Measurement
    Per the principles of clarity, asset allocation, and cost control, routinely monitoring your investments' progress is essential. This oversight is key to ensuring that these key aspects are effectively managed and to fulfilling your fiduciary responsibilities:
    • Performance Review: Periodically assess if the investments meet expectations and compare their performance against relevant benchmarks.
    • Goal Alignment: Ensure the portfolio’s returns align with your nonprofit's financial objectives and adhere to the risk parameters set by your asset allocation strategy.
    • Benchmarking and IPS Compliance: Regularly compare your portfolio’s performance with appropriate benchmarks and check compliance with the Investment Policy Statement (IPS), adjusting as needed.

Exploring ESG Investments for Your Nonprofit

If you've been watching investment trends, you've probably encountered the term ESG. But what does it mean for your nonprofit? Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria are standards that socially conscious investors use to screen and evaluate potential investments.

  • ‍Environmental - How a company performs as a steward of the environment.‍
  • Social - How a company manages its relationships with key stakeholders, including employees, customers, suppliers, and the communities they serve.‍
  • Governance - Oversight of the company, including leadership, board structure, compensation, audits, internal controls, transparency, and shareholder rights.

If your organization is keen to support ESG principles, here are some tips to consider:

Limited Options

Be aware that applying ESG screens might narrow your investment choices.

Organizational Needs vs. Personal Preferences: Always prioritize the organization's interests when managing its assets.

Balance ESG with Other Portfolio Considerations

It's a challenge to meet everyone's specific ESG concerns. Aim to balance positive ESG features, cost-effectiveness, and overall portfolio needs.

Maintain Diversification

Remember, well-managed companies often consider all stakeholders and adopt robust ESG policies.

Look Beyond ESG Scores

Companies with lower ESG scores might be actively improving. It's worth considering these as potential investment opportunities to encourage positive changes.

IV. The Role of a Financial Consultant or Advisor for Nonprofits

Prudently managing a nonprofit’s assets is vital to your board’s role. Unless you have deep in-house investment expertise, partnering with an advisor providing investment consulting for nonprofits is prudent when opening a nonprofit brokerage account.

This advisor should be more than just an expert; they should be a trusted partner who aligns your organization's assets with your investment goals. Look for a fiduciary advisor, meaning they must put your organization’s interests ahead of their own. The advisor should love working with nonprofits and bring a well-rounded approach. Beyond just handling investments, they should offer services tailored to help your nonprofit thrive and succeed.

The Value of Nonprofit Investment Advisors

Nonprofit financial advisors bring valuable expertise and guidance to nonprofits, helping them navigate investment challenges and ensure effective financial asset management. Here are key areas where an advisor can bring significant value to your organization:

  1. Alignment of Stakeholders: Investment advisors are essential in facilitating consensus-building and ensuring everyone works towards a common objective, enhancing decision-making efficiency.
  2. Optimal Asset Allocation Decisions: They guide nonprofits in making effective asset allocation decisions for long-term returns.
  3. Crafting Essential Documents: Advisors assist in creating key documents like the Investment Policy Statement for structured decision-making.
  4. Independent and Objective Investment Management: They offer unbiased advice to mitigate emotional biases in investment decisions.
  5. Optimizing Balance Sheet and Fund Management: They bring expertise in optimizing balance sheets and managing funds for increased asset growth.
  6. Understanding Investment Results: They clarify financial data and reports, aiding informed investment decision-making.
  7. Disciplined Rebalancing: Advisors implement rebalancing strategies to maintain desired asset allocation and reduce risk.
  8. Facilitating Transitions: They ensure smooth transitions in investment committees and board memberships for continuity.
  9. Cost-Effectiveness: Investment advisors reduce overall investment expenses by strategically selecting low-cost asset managers.
  10. Building Confidence in the Investment Program: Their presence boosts confidence in the oversight group and donors, ensuring commitment to financial objectives.

Advisor Communication is Essential to Success

As a stakeholder in a nonprofit organization, effective communication with your investment advisor is critical to achieving your goals. You should receive frequent and transparent communication to ensure that everyone involved in your nonprofit's governance – including your staff, investment oversight committee, and the board – is fully informed and engaged in the investment process. This inclusive approach ensures informed decision-making, fosters collective responsibility, and upholds transparency and trust.

Expect at least quarterly updates from your advisor and more often during significant market or organizational changes. These updates should inform you about portfolio performance, investment strategy, market trends, and how they align with your nonprofit's goals.

Your reports should be clear, concise, and without complex jargon, allowing stakeholders of varying financial expertise to understand them. Communication shouldn't be restricted to one-on-one interactions; it should encompass all stakeholders, including staff, committees, and the board.

To evaluate if your investment advisor is communicating effectively, consider these five questions:

  1. Performance Reporting: Are the performance reports straightforward, and do they include relevant benchmark comparisons?
  2. Accessibility: Are communication and reporting available online in an organized, easily accessible manner?
  3. Archiving: Are past reports and communications archived systematically for reference?
  4. Policy Review: Does the advisor regularly communicate about policy reviews and updates?
  5. Custom Reviews: Can custom portfolio and performance reviews be shared using video to provide a more engaging and detailed analysis?

These questions will help you assess the quality and effectiveness of your investment advisor's communication, ensuring it aligns with the needs of your nonprofit organization.

Choosing the Right Investment Advisor for Your Nonprofit

Typical Financial Advisor vs. Nonprofit Investment Advisor:

While most financial advisors focus on individual wealth and retirement needs, nonprofit advisors are attuned to nonprofits' distinct long-term goals and compliance requirements. Unlike typical advisors, who may need more expertise in specialized areas crucial for nonprofit governance, nonprofit specialist advisors are adept at managing the unique needs of entities like endowments and foundations. They tailor their processes to align with your organization's objectives, enhancing decision-making and overall success. Importantly, the typical advisors' service model often leads to communication gaps and misaligned goals within nonprofits. Your organization will be best served by an advisor who engages a wide range of stakeholders - staff, committees, boards, and donors - ensuring that everyone is well-informed and confident in the stewardship of your assets.

How to Select Your Investment Advisor 

Selecting an investment advisor is a pivotal decision for your board and investment oversight committee when it comes to investment and endowment management. Given the significant implications for your organization's financial future, this choice demands a careful and well-structured approach. There are several pathways to consider in this selection process, each with its unique advantages and considerations.

An Investment Management Request for Proposal (RFP) is a common method. An RFP is a formal document that invites investment consultants and advisors to submit proposals outlining their services, qualifications, and fees. This approach allows your organization to compare various options in a structured format. However, it's essential to recognize the intricacies and time commitments associated with the RFP process. Crafting a detailed RFP, reviewing submissions, and conducting follow-ups can be extensive and complex.

Alternatively, some organizations prefer direct engagement with a select few advisory firms. This approach involves shortlisting two or three highly qualified firms and conducting in-depth interviews. This method can be more efficient than the RFP process. It allows for a more dynamic and interactive discussion, helping you assess each firm's compatibility with your organization more directly. Such face-to-face or virtual meetings facilitate a deeper understanding of each firm's approach, values, and how they might align with your organization's goals.
