Scope of Responsibility

The KFAC Endowment Committee is responsible for the management and investment of endowment funds for the long-term financial benefit of KFAC and its educational goals and objectives.

  3. 3. Provide accurate and timely financial reports to the Foundation Board of Directors and its members.

The KFAC Endowment Committee in no way intends to present itself as professional money managers, but rather individuals who have volunteered their time and talents to aid in the financial aspects of the organization that will further the educational mission of KFAC. In the managing and investing of funds, committee members shall avoid any transaction, conduct or activity which might be construed as self-dealing or a conflict of interest.

Investment Policy
