Management of Nonprofit Investment Reserves
North Berkeley Wealth Management brings years of dedication and experience to our work with mission-driven organizations. Our goal is to strengthen organizations by providing financial clarity and stability through the proper management of their reserves.
Our nonprofit investment management solutions are designed for steady long-term growth paired with downside protection. Portfolios are constructed based on the specific needs of each organization, to align your mission with the impact investment choices that may be appropriate for your portfolio.
Guidance and Accountability
We understand the financial challenges faced by nonprofits and provide guidance that promotes the long-term well-being of your organization. By creating an investment framework, we can build accountability within your leadership team, now and into the future.
Agreed Upon Investment Strategies
Our work together starts with an Investment Policy Statement (IPS) which acts as a mutually agreed-upon strategy that is aligned to your organization’s mission. It clearly states your organization’s investment goals, risk tolerances, and time horizons. As the organization’s needs and goals evolve, our strategies will respond.
Our services include
- Value-oriented, diversified portfolios designed for steady long-term growth with downside protection
- Tailored portfolio construction to align your organization’s investments with your investment policy
- Specialization in ESG investing with carbon conscious and impact investment options available for organizations concerned about alignment with progressive social and environmental goals.
- Stock donation assistance to allow your organization to accept in-kind donations
- Strategies based on risk, time horizons, and organizational values to establish and maintain strategic alignment of your investments
- Periodic reviews and quarterly reporting to Board or Investment Committee to ensure all stakeholders are properly informed

Engaging with Aging, Part I
Gradual changes in our physical and mental abilities, coupled with changes to our social landscape, bring many to consider a more dramatic change: – should they move to a residential community that provides built-in care services and new social opportunities Or should they stay in their home?
Missing the Forest for the Trees
Understanding how global economic systems affect global ecosystems allows for better economic and financial decision making. Together with consumer demand and policy changes, investors have the ability to influence our efforts to protect the environment through financial allocation.
