A consistent stream of income to help support your agency’s needs.

Your charitable organization can set up an endowment fund at the Victoria Foundation, creating a long-term source of revenue. By pooling investments, we’ll reduce your risk while optimizing returns. And we can help to grow your endowment, ensuring you get the most from our partnership.
