How the Do Good School is growing their giving.
A nonprofit the "Do Good School" has $1M in reserve funds sitting in their savings account. The good news is that they converted that savings account into a money market so every year they get an average return of .07%. This gives them an additional $700 per year! The bad news is that the inflation rate was 1.2% in 2020 and expected to be 2.4% in 2021.
This means the Do Good School's money is actively losing value.
If the Do Good School had instead chosen to passively invest (financial practices that donors, businesses, and foundations follow) with Infinite Giving in our diversified Balanced Grower portfolio, that $1M in reserve funds could have returned an annual average of 8.29% per year.
They could have kept up with inflation and potentially earned an average return of $82,900 each year.
Should the Do Good School decide to keep investing, compound interest could grow their account to $1.49M over a 5 year period, all without raising additional donor support.
We call it Growing their Giving.
