The creation of philanthropic funds at the McPherson County Community Foundation is driven by each donor’s wishes. Administrative fees offset costs including fund management, investment oversight and grant making. Fees vary depending on the type and size of fund. A minimum annual fee of $25.00 will be applied to all non-endowed funds. Administrative fees are charged monthly (except where noted) and withdrawn from the fund’s principal. All fees are based on the principal market value of each month.

Fundraising: If you wish to engage in fundraising activities to add to your fund, please ask for our fund raising policies and guidelines.
Special Project and pass-through funds: From time to time, the MCCF is asked to be a fiscal sponsor for a special project or to administer a fund that will serve as a pass-through for a particular project. These funds may have a large number of contributions, disbursements or both. Our fee will be 2-10% of the contributions received based upon the nature of the work required by the MCCF.
