The Trustees of the Funds is a related organization of the Diocese of Virginia with a heritage dating back to 1754. “ToTF” provides services to Episcopal Church entities within Virginia.
An elected Board of Trustees oversees ToTF. These Trustees, all of whom are active Episcopalians, are selected for their expertise in investments, law, or business. They oversee a professional team of portfolio managers to ensure that funds are invested to provide the best long-term results for Participants. ToTF serves approximately 120 churches and organizations and manages over $135 million in assets.
Episcopal churches and organizations within the Commonwealth of Virginia can invest in ToTF. Individuals can contribute to accounts on behalf of these organizations, but they cannot invest on their own.
ToTF currently offers a balanced investment (Balanced Fund) and a short-term fixed income fund (Short Term Fund). ToTF is developing an all-equity investment offering that should be available to investors by September 2021.
ToTF provides professionally-managed investing, reporting, and customer service specifically designed to support Episcopal organizations. We can help with endowments, capital campaigns, building maintenance support, and mission and ministry support programs. As our accounts grow our operating costs are spread over a larger asset base and all Participants (including the Diocese of Virginia) benefit. The more successful ToTF is in its work, the more funds are available for Episcopal mission and ministry throughout Virginia and the world.
Accounts can be opened with a minimum of $500 and after that, any amount can be added.
On average, an account can be established within 10 days of ToTF receiving the paperwork and initial deposit.
