Invest in the sustainability of Big Brothers Big Sisters
In 2015, our Board of Directors established the Founder's Fund in honor of our agency's four founders: Sig Davidson, Jay Walker, Beirne Carter, and Warner Dalhouse. This is a cash reserve fund we leverage to prove our financial stability and receive grant funding. The “Founder’s Fund” is held as a separate financial investment with strict board oversight and restrictions. If an emergency arises, it will take an action of the board to borrow from the fund with a repayment plan for the principle. Long term capital growth and fund preservation will dictate the investment parameters for the “Founder’s Fund.” In order to maximize the annual financial resources available to the agency, we need to establish, maintain, and leverage this contingency fund.
