Investment Options

Community Foundation of New Jersey & Community Foundation of South Jersey

The assets of your fund can be invested in one of our pooled investment options, with one of our investment partners, or with one of your own investment managers. By investing with these partners and managers, fundholders may design specific portfolios for their funds. In these circumstances, the fees are negotiated on a case-by-case basis. Prior to indicating your preference, please consider the time horizon for grant recommendations from your fund. The Community Foundation’s staff is available to discuss these options with you.
