Investment Management Team


One of Kitsap Community Foundation's (KCF) most important responsibilities is our stewardship of charitable funds. We have a broadly diversified investment portfolio that is structured to produce investment returns that exceed market averages, particularly in down markets. In our investment program, we combine the assets of permanent charitable funds for investment. Each individual fund benefits from the strength of a large pooled portfolio. The result is high quality, diversified investment management at reasonable fees and costs. KCF's investment partners, BNY Mellon Wealth Management, a national investment and wealth management firm, and Halbert Hargrove, collaborate with the KCF investment committee composed of knowledgeable and experienced volunteers. The committee oversees the investment program and makes recommendations to the Board of Directors regarding investment policy, strategy, and management. Current members of the investment committee are: Bruce Bennett
