Foundation Finance

The Foundation’s mission is to meet charitable community needs through leadership, grants and services. One way we achieve our mission is to facilitate prudent management and care of our funds.

The Foundation believes the best long-term performance will be achieved through a balanced portfolio consisting of 75% equities and 25% fixed income and cash. As an affiliate of the Greater Salina Community Foundation (GSCF), the funds at the Republic County Community Foundation are pooled together with all the funds held by GSCF and their affiliates. The funds are invested with Vanguard and governed by a local Finance Committee at GSCF.

We are confident in our performance and rate well when compared to other investment pools. See our GSCF Investment Portfolio to see where we rank among other comparative indices.
