The foundation serves as a responsible steward of more than 200 restricted funds. Most of these funds are designated for specific schools, and donors include parents, alumni, or funders who want to support a one-time project at a school.
The Foundation has received highest marks from its auditor as it relates to fiscal management of the funds. In addition, the Foundation partners with the Mission Center, a full service accounting firm, to provide all bookkeeping services. The Foundation charges a modest (and sliding) administrative fee for fiscal stewardship of some of the funds.
The Foundation is grateful to a wide range of donors whose generosity supports these funds.
