We prioritize transparency and trust

The Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga was formed in 1963 by a committed group of local leaders who believed in the need for a public foundation to serve Chattanooga. As stewards of permanent assets, we believe that transparency and trust must be central to our work.

Committed to Excellence

At the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga, we help you achieve your philanthropic goals using sound financial principles and thoughtful stewardship.

As a 501(c)3 public charitable organization, we take pride in providing clear, transparent information about our financial position, and adhere to the highest standards to operate in both the public view and public interest. It’s part of our commitment to our donors and to the communities we serve.

Available Investment Pools

Our donors have a variety of options when investing their charitable assets at the Community Foundation. We can help you pick an investment pool that makes the most sense for you, your family, and your goals.

Long-term Investment Pool

This Pool would be appropriate for donors who have a long-term objective and are comfortable with periodic volatility.

Short-term Investment Pool

This Pool would be appropriate for donors for whom capital preservation and current income are the primary objectives.

Indexed Growth Pools

This Pool would be appropriate for donors who have a long-term objective, are comfortable with periodic volatility, but would prefer access to low cost index funds.

SRI Pools

SRI refers to “Socially Responsible Investing”. This pool would be appropriate for donors who have a long-term objective, are comfortable with periodic volatility, and seek to align their investments with certain values.

Individually Managed Funds (“IMF”) Program

Under CFGC’s IMF Program, donors have the option to retain the services of a preferred advisor for their fund. Assets would not be commingled with other donors.
