  • (1888PressRelease) July 07, 2018 - The Foundation established by Harjes Downer, an independent investment management firm committed to enabling clients to become high-performance businesses, announced that this year, in addition to the regular, annual release of its Annual Report and audited financial statements it will host an Annual Meeting, to which all of Harjes Downer’s esteemed account advisors are invited.

    "Right now, fundraising is extraordinarily difficult for charities," said Quon Goh, Director of Public Service at the Social Engagement Center. "Donors and fundraisers remain wary about the economy. Yet these findings suggest that fundraisers either have indications from donors that things may be beginning to get better, or they are optimistic that the situation will improve and they are confident in their nonprofit's ability to earn donors' contributions.”

    Despite the nation's evolving economic difficulties, an independent survey of some of Harjes Downer Foundation’s higher net-worth donors demonstrated that commitment to Foundation acts remains strong. Among the reasons cited for Foundation giving are making a difference in the world, an obligation to give back to society, and promotion of a specific philosophy or belief. Furthermore, a series of social experiments concludes that “altruism can start a chain reaction of positive emotions.”

    Harjes Downer Foundation continues be a leader in transparency and to support and facilitate generosity through excellent service, low costs, and openness. To this end Harjes Downer Foundation has introduced a new Short-Term Bond pool, as well as new web-based services that allow donors to initiate or complete donations, recommend investment pool exchanges, select paperless notifications for most account activities, and receive enhanced account confirmations and quarterly statements that provide more timely insight into account and gifting and granting activities.
