Endowment StrategyCommitted to responsible investment of our endowment funds
At Unity College Sustainability Science affects more than just what happens in the field, classroom, or laboratory. It goes beyond operational initiatives like recycling, renewable energy, and local foods to impact how we make our investments.
Just as a commitment to personal sustainability means conscious consideration of one’s financial investments as well as day-to-day choices, Unity College is committed to responsible investment of our endowment funds.
In 2012 Unity College became the first college or university to divest its investment portfolio from the top 200 fossil fuel. That re-investment was not only the right thing to do for America’s Environmental College, but it also has paid off financially.
The Statement of Endowment Investment Objectives and Policies is maintained by the Unity College Board of Trustees and articulates Unity College’s investment objectives, investment policies, specific guidelines for endowment investment, policies related to investment management and reporting, and code of ethics.
Spinnaker Trust manages the Unity College investment portfolio and endowment performance is reported to the Unity College leadership through a Market and Portfolio Review. Click here for the latest annual Market and Portfolio Review.
