How We Help Not-for-Profit Entities
Upper Canada Capital is uniquely qualified to assist churches, charities, foundations and other not-for-profits with their money management and cash flow planning needs. Our services for not-for-profit organizations include the following:
Advice for Fiduciaries
Often board members overseeing a not-for-profit organization have never managed money for a third party before. We offer education to help board members understand proper governance regarding not-for-profit money management.
Our services for fiduciaries include:
We will assist the board members of a not-for-profit organization to build a professional investment program following our time-tested six step investing process.
These steps will include defining investment portfolio goals, setting risks, creating a strategic asset allocation, creating an Investment Policy Statement, selecting investment products, understanding fees, establishing re-balancing parameters and setting communication standards.
Investment Policy Statement Preparation
An investment policy statement (IPS) is a document that outlines how the not-for-profit should invest its money. It forms the guidance standards for the investment plan and sets parameters for products, strategies and fees.
We will work with the not-for-profit organization to develop a customized IPS suited to their evolving money management needs.
Reporting to the Board
Our services include regular reporting to the board or committees of the not-for-profit organization on results of investment performance vs goals and benchmarks after fees.
We will also attend the Annual General Meetings as desired and answer questions if asked.
