Endowment Fund Accounting
For educational institutions, private and community foundations, our support simplifies endowed gift management – and helps expand valuable constituent relationships
Our expertise in endowment fund accounting has proven indispensable to independent schools, colleges and universities, private foundations, community foundations with individual donor funds and donor advised funds, among others. For many of these clients, internal budgets and resources are strained handling the laborious accounting, recordkeeping and reporting we are ideally equipped to provide. The fact that our support also simplifies establishing and managing endowed gifts helps clients attract and maintain relationships with donors.
An essential solution that streamlines accounting, recordkeeping, internal controls, reporting and governance – and helps attract benefactors.
Investment Unitization Solutions
For organizations that maintain a large number of separately managed endowed accounts, we introduce the advantage of “investment unitization” to address the challenge inherent in tracking, reconciling and reporting a large number of investment transactions. Consolidating multiple accounts into a single pooled account offers economies of scale, accounting efficiencies both internally and with donors, and improves portfolio management and investment performance monitoring. This solution is particularly valuable with smaller accounts for which costs, fees and administrative time are disproportionately high.
Proprietary Technology, Profound Experience
Complementing our accounting expertise is sophisticated investment administration software technology. Our proprietary Fund Administration Platform simplifies reporting for internal staff and has proven as highly effective for non-profit organizations as it is for hedge funds, private equity funds, foundations, family offices and other institutional investors. Reports can be customized to facilitate accounting for donor gifts as part of the consolidated fund and separately, enabling donors to see their contributions, investment performance and the direction of endowment returns towards their preferred beneficiaries.
Attracting and Engaging Donors
In addition to strengthening the accounting function, our solution enhances the non-profit’s ability to attract benefactors, many of whom wish to be kept informed about their contributions.
