THE INVESTMENT FUND FOR FOUNDATIONS
pursuing investment excellence on behalf of endowed non-profits
TIFF's credo was created soon after TIFF's founding in 1991 and has stood the test of time. It remains unchanged.
TIFF requires complete honesty of its staff, board, and vendors.
No member of TIFF's staff or board shall encourage an organization to purchase a product or service
that it does not need.
TIFF shall be accountable
for the actions of its board and staff in the performance of their authorized duties.
Each member of TIFF's staff
shall be accountable for his or her actions.
TIFF values candor
and encourages staff, board, and vendors to
disclose complaints, biases, and real or potential conflicts of interest
at the earliest possible time.
Employment, promotion, and compensation decisions shall be
based on merit alone.
The value of members of TIFF's staff shall be measured by the
enthusiasm and care
with which they perform their assigned duties, not by the character of such duties.
No member of TIFF's staff is too exalted
to perform, when necessary, the duties of the least-senior or lowest-paid employee.
TIFF seeks to maintain a congenial work environment where
patience and humor are the norms.
Staff members who serve in multiple roles may appear in more than one organizational category.
