Fiduciary Responsibilities of The Campanile Foundation

While The Campanile Foundation is a California non-profit corporation created to administer private gifts, responsibility for the governance of the Foundation, including investments, is vested in its Board of Directors. The board seeks investment returns through a professionally managed portfolio, and to achieve its investment objective, the Foundation retains an independent investment consultant to provide ongoing evaluation and performance review.

Honoring Donor Intent

In order to meet the responsibilities the Foundation has to its donors, it's essential to understand donor intent. Foundation staff, along with university fundraisers, work closely under the guidance of gift policies and procedures, and gift agreements to understand and honor donors’ intent in their gifts to philanthropy.
