Fund for the 21st Century

Within the Fund for the 21st Century, the Boston Foundation offers the following three separate investment options: Balanced Plus Pool, Balanced Pool and Short-Term Pool. The three pools allow donors to select the option that best matches the time horizon of their charitable giving plans.  Donors may also customize their asset allocation by investing among all three pools.
