Our Funds

The Trustees of the Funds mission is to enable and grow the ministries of Virginia Episcopal congregations and institutions through faithful investment and management of their funds.

We work with churches and related organizations to achieve their financial performance and capital preservation goals while acting as stewards of their monetary resources. Assets invested in ToTF portfolios are managed on a day-to-day basis, offering timely decision making and the ability to enhance returns while mitigating risk through agile asset allocation and investment selections. This approach offers all our participants access to classes of investments and investment expertise that is often unavailable to smaller investors.

ToTF offers three funds any of which our participants may invest in to achieve their specific financial objectives:

Balanced Fund

The Balanced Fund is ToTF’s flagship fund established to provide a conservative investment option for endowment funds and other long-term accounts. It is conservatively managed to preserve funds and earn steady returns while dampening volatility.

The trustees manage the Balanced Fund to provide invested participants with an annual payout of between 4% and 5% if participants choose to take it.

This fund is subject to market risk.

The fund is managed for higher returns over a longer-term horizon but with higher volatility.
