Endowment Funds

GreenPath Financial Wellness has established two Founder’s Funds: the Albert O. Horner GreenPath Financial Wellness Founder’s Funds and the Bruce Paradis Homeownership Presership Foundation (HPF) Founder’s Fund.

The Founder’s Funds were created to recognize these incredible founders’ contributions. They will generate a stream of income for GreenPath, leaving assets invested to grow in perpetuity and ensuring assets are preserved for our long-term mission.

GreenPath provided the initial funding to recognize these incredible founders’ contributions. The Funds will be managed by the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, which currently manages endowments for more than 200 nonprofit organizations.

“The Founder’s Funds are a most fitting way to honor the legacies of Mr. Horner and Mr. Paradis. They provided a great gift that has helped people for decades improve their financial wellness, obtain and sustain their American Dream. We are committed to continuing the great work they started. These endowments will be a lasting demonstration of that commitment.” —Kristen Holt, President & CEO, GreenPath Financial Wellness
