The Archaeology Center Endowment

Make Your Mark On Our Future


The Verde Valley Archaeology Center has established The Archaeology Center Endowment with the Arizona Community Foundation (ACF) Nonprofit Fund. The Nonprofit Fund is a convenient, flexible tool for nonprofit organizations. A nonprofit organization qualified in the state of Arizona, such as the VVAC, may establish a nonprofit fund at ACF. These are component funds of ACF and are under the legal and fiduciary control of ACF. The VVAC may accept gifts from individual donors and then transfer those gifts to the Fund established under these terms and held at ACF.

ACF maintains five professionally managed investment pools to safeguard principal and achieve a rate of return. The VVAC has chosen to invest 50% of our funds in the Socially Responsible Pool that seeks to grow capital long term through funds screened for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors, and 50% in the Long Term Aggressive Growth Pool. This pool seeks to maximize growth of capital long term through funds that emphasize public equities with less diversification and a high level of volatility.

We encourage you to contribute to The Archaeology Center Endowment fund and help sustain the financial foundation of the Center for generations to come. For more information, read our Gift Acceptance Policies and Guidelines.
