Bay Area Community Foundation Financials
We take our financial management responsibility very seriously. Our investment goals are to invest for growth in the long term. The investments of the Bay Area Community Foundation (BACF) are guided and monitored by our Stewardship Committee, comprised of BACF trustees and community leaders who are knowledgeable in investment and financial matters. The Stewardship Committee is advised by an independent investment consulting firm that, along with the staff, assists in setting the investment policies and guidelines that govern our investments.
We aim to grow our funds over time and maintain diligent financial management to meet or exceed our spending rate. Because we maintain endowment funds, our investment timeline is forever. Bay Area Community Foundation is an accredited community foundation and meets National Standards.
