Investment Alliance Program

Foundation For The Carolinas offers a unique program that enables qualified financial institutions to manage the investments of their client’s charitable gift fund here at FFTC. The Investment Alliance Program allows investment firms to take advantage of our philanthropic expertise, while retaining the investment management of their client’s fund assets. The team at FFTC provides all of the administrative services and processes grant distributions from the fund while you focus on the investment portfolio. Fundholders with balances of $250,000 or greater may recommend their investment managers for the program.

The program builds on our long-term commitment to partnering with professional advisors across the Carolinas and bringing innovative philanthropic solutions to our clients. We welcome the opportunity to meet with qualified investment institutions to discuss this great philanthropic partnership opportunity. Contact us at 704.973.4500 or philanthropy@fftc.org to learn more.
