The Foundation’s Board of Directors and Investment Committee oversee the management of the endowment.

The Investment Committee is a standing committee of the Board of Directors that assists in fulfilling responsibilities related to the invested funds held by HFPG, Inc.

Working closely with Foundation staff, the committee reviews and approves the investment policy and proxy voting policy statement and provides direction for the investment of the donor funds entrusted to the Hartford Foundation.

In managing the endowment, we aim to achieve long-term investment results that exceed the Foundation’s spending policy plus the rate of inflation. We further recognize the need to provide sufficient cashflow from the portfolio to support current spending. 

In short, we seek to deliver strong investment performance while also preserving the future spending power of the Foundation and protecting the endowment from the risk of a permanent loss of capital.
