Organizational Endowments

  • CFES holds and manages endowments for dozens of nonprofit organizations.  Benefits to these organizations include convenience, investment oversight, permanence, and access to planned giving tools.

Memorial Funds

  • Since CFES is a permanent institution, CFES is the ideal home for a memorial fund.  A fund named to honor the memory of a beloved family member, associate, or friend may be designated to support a charitable purpose reflecting the life and values of the deceased.
  • CFES is equipped to handle the large influx of gifts a memorial fund may generate.  Family members will receive regular reports on fund activity.


  • Scholarships are a popular option for donors concerned about young people and their futures.  CFES is home to more than 100 scholarships funds.


  • Charitable gift annuities and other life income gifts are a powerful way for your client to put assets to work for them, making a significant charitable gift and receiving significant lifetime income.
