6. Distribution and Transfer Restrictions. Donor(s) acknowledge and agree (A) that the Foundation currently maintains five diversified investment portfolios with the goal of providing a reliable source of income to meet the needs and services of the community, related entities and beneficiary agencies and (B) that such portfolios are designed to include dynamic management where the portfolio investment manager will make tactical changes to the asset allocation in response to market conditions with a goal of further enhancing returns or reducing risk, depending on market conditions. Accordingly, to enable the investment portfolios to stay within targeted asset allocations and meet cash flow obligations as they come due, in addition to any other limitations set forth herein, the Foundation requires that the assets contributed to the Fund be held subject to the following distribution and transfer restrictions:
Funds of Less than $5 Million
Funds of $5 Million or More
