A strong foundation for your long-term giving
Throughout history, placing a cornerstone was the first and most important act in the building process, giving strength and support to the entire structure. In this same spirit, the Cornerstone Fund anchors your long-term giving strategy. This is a personalized donor-advised fund that offers key advantages and the flexibility and innovations you expect from NCF.
Refine your generosity calling and strategy with help from NCF’s local and national expert charitable planners.
Funds for your family
Engage the next generation in generosity by opening no-cost Giving Funds for your children and grandchildren age 18-26.
Send support quickly, safely, and cost-efficiently to qualified overseas charities, including a discount on your first grant.
Costs for a Cornerstone Fund start at 44 bps and scale down, making it best suited for Funds with balances of about $2.5 million or more. For lower balances, a minimum charge of $950 per month will apply, and NCF flexibly allows for separately managed accounts (+5 bps). Through your support, together we’re powering NCF’s mission to further the mobilization of resources as we inspire biblical generosity.
When you open a Cornerstone Fund, you join a community of families who are experiencing greater joy and impacting the causes they love. Consider these reasons so many others have chosen to place their Cornerstone with NCF.
