Designated funds

Designated funds allow investors to save money while earning interest that is paid out in regular instalments to a community organization that is dear to them.

Designated funds help eligible community organizations secure a regular income stream, thereby reducing pressure on staff to solicit donations and freeing up resources for service provision.

Your designated fund goes a long way toward making a difference. Not only do you empower low-income tenants, but you also help secure regular funding for a community organization that works to fight for equity every single day.
