Goals and Objectives
BCU Foundation responsibly manages the philanthropic contributions of thousands of donors and currently administers over 35 designated and general funds. These funds provide resources that enable our community to grow and prosper.
Contributions can be made by donating directly to the BCUF General Fund or by creating a Designated or Memorial Fund which leaves a personal legacy by making a meaningful contribution, in perpetuity, to your chosen cause or purpose. The annual income earned from investing the capital of a Designated Fund is earmarked for a specific purpose according to your instructions.
Contributions made to BCU Foundation are invested to ensure the highest return and the greatest benefit to the designated cause. Investments are managed by BCU Wealth Management in accordance with the Investment Policy Statement set by the BCUF Investment Committee. The BCUF Investment Committee oversees the investments made for the designated funds and reports its oversight activities and any resulting recommendations to the BCU Foundation Board of Directors.
