When St. Matthew's needed help in replacing a narrow wooden ramp to the main door of the Cathedral, they knew where to turn. As an investment client of the Episcopal Foundation of Dallas since 2007, St. Matthew's is well-acquainted with the Foundation's annual Grant Program. Their application described a vibrant and diverse congregation with a commitment to community outreach and an urgent need for a safe ADA-compliant entrance to the church.
The Foundation employs a combination of actively managed separate accounts, mutual funds, and ETFs. Investment managers are responsible for directing the investment strategy, selecting securities, and timing purchases and sales for their portfolio. The Foundation's Investment Committee meets quarterly to evaluate managers and portfolio performance.
