Permanent fund gifts create opportunity many times over

Longtime Community Loan Fund supporter Penny Pitou created a permanent fund

A permanent fund at the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund is a named endowed fund—with a twist.

Rather than invest the money in stocks and bonds and use a bit of the gain for our work, we place these funds in our lending pool. All of your gift—not simply the income—is put to work creating and preserving housing, jobs, child care and community facilities.

Permanent funds may be established with a commitment of $100,000 or more.
