Who decides how the money is invested?
Donors making gifts via the Inter-Web are provided a plethora of options to decide where the value of their gifts goes. Give now.
Donors using more manual processes can choose between a Restricted Donor Agreement which affords donors the best opportunity to formulate their intentions; or
An Unrestricted Donor Agreement which transfers that responsibility to the UOG Endowment Foundation. In these cases, our Board of Directors decides which financial management services, banking institutions, etc. will provide better returns toward our overall goals.
