Although funds of $250,000 or more can be managed on a segregated basis to accommodate our donors’ range of preferences, our commingled investments continue to be governed prudently using roughly a 35–40% cash or fixed, 60–65% equity asset allocation. This consistent and conservative approach is fundamental to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s appreciation for its unique role as a steward of our “community’s charitable savings account.”
