Partner with HighGround to Protect, Strengthen and Grow your mission. With the sophistication of a world class investment manager and the values of your community nonprofit, we understand your unique needs. Our business model is different in that we serve nonprofit organizations, all having a higher purpose of serving others. HighGround Advisors is a public charity and our trust company, HighGround Trust Company, was established to assist with serving those needing trust services to support their unique business requirements. We do not have shareholders, so the financial pressures associated with a public company are less important in our organization. Because we only serve nonprofit organizations, we are well positioned to support your goals now and into the future.
We manage resources for over 450 nonprofits with assets at HighGround ranging from $500 to $180 million. Our unmatched knowledge of nonprofit investment management has fostered long-term partnerships with our clients — some since 1930. These lasting relationships are a testament of our ability to deliver consistent, exceptional service as well as the tailored solutions that are critical to your success.
Ranging from fully outsourced, turnkey offerings to customized options developed just for you — we make it easy to choose the level of support and service required to best serve your mission. Our client asset mix is comprised of endowments, quasi-endowments, other charitable gift accounts and operational or building funds for nonprofit organizations.
We Protect your mission. We Strengthen your mission. We Grow your mission.
Partner with HighGround to Protect, Strengthen and Grow your calling. Since 1930, HighGround has played a unique role in enabling churches and ministries to carry out their missions through endowment management and charitable gift planning services. We take our role seriously as faithful stewards of the gifts of philanthropy, yet, HighGround is much more than a money manager. We recognize that churches and ministries need an experienced team to provide sound charitable giving advice and planning services. Whether your donors are interested in making an outright gift through their estate or exploring the possibilities of giving through a charitable trust or gift annuity, we provide information and comprehensive support every step of the way. Furthermore, our areas of investment expertise are specifically geared toward the needs of churches and ministries, including cash and liquidity management, short-term investment funds and endowment funds.
At Highground, you can work with a team that shares your faith-based ideology. Our Christian heritage is evident in our core values: We put you first. We are Servant Hearted. We act with Integrity. We promote Innovation. We are Visionary. We lead with Professional Excellence. These values are incorporated in our HighGround investment funds where we apply screens to identify and restrict companies whose business activities are inconsistent with Christian faith and beliefs.
We Protect your calling. We Strengthen your calling. We Grow your calling.
Partner with HighGround to Protect, Strengthen and Grow your legacy. At HighGround, our expert team of lawyers are eager to maximize your giving. From gifts of cash and securities to donor-advised funds and charitable gift annuities, our ability to structure and implement a diverse range of giving options is one of the many reasons our clients work with us. One way to fulfill your goals and continue your philanthropy beyond your lifetime is by crafting a donor-advised fund that reflects your charitable values. A donor-advised fund is an excellent choice for individuals and families who have several charities they want to benefit, but who are not yet ready to commit to specific charities at the time assets are contributed to fund the donor-advised fund account.
We put you first at HighGround. We are more than an impersonal 1-800 number; we care about you and your legacy. So when you partner with us, you can expect a commitment of constant communication, personalized service and professional excellence every step of the way.
We Protect your legacy. We Strengthen your legacy. We Grow your legacy.
