How to grow your gift

Donations and bequests made to the Northland Community Foundation can be invested, protected and grown, meaning your generosity will support our communities needs forever.

The donations and bequests can be invested forever. Every year some of the investment income is retained to ensure your gift grows in line with inflation and is protected from market fluctuations. Then the balance of the income from the investments are distributed to worthy causes throughout Northland each and every year, forever.

Any sized donation can be invested and pooled with the Northland Fund or Special Interest Funds. For example $1,000 if invested today could grow to $6,568 in 100 years, and gift out $5,275 in grants back to charitable causes in Northland. Making your gift keep on giving forever!
