and then Policy & Guidelines for “standard” Funds.
Union County Foundation “Frontier Funds”
Policy & Guidelines
  • The intent is to encourage the establishment of named Funds in situations where the $5,000 minimum balance is an obstacle.
  • The program requires scheduled contributions resulting in structured Fund balance growth over time (a minimum balance of $5,000 within 5 years of starting the fund).
  • Minimum starting balance is $500.
  • At a minimum, every 6 months a structured contribution of at least $500 must be added to the Fund. The net increase to the fund’s balance is to be at least $1,000 per year. This structured contribution schedule will result in reaching a required $5,000 minimum fund balance within five years.
  • 100% of distributions are to benefit Union Co. residents and/or organizations.
  • The Fund shall receive no interest credits until it becomes a “Standard” Fund having reached a $5,000 balance.
  • The Fund shall not be assessed Admin. fees until the balance reaches $5,000 during any quarterly billing cycle.
If contribution requirements are not met the Fund will:
  1. be transferred to a similar Fund designated at the time of establishment or
  2. be liquidated and distributed in accordance with the Fund agreement.
