T. Rowe Price Program for Charitable Giving
Solid investment choices and reasonable costs add to the appeal of this program. To open an account requires $10,000, and grant requests may be made starting at $1,000. The plan charges 0.5% as an administrative fee on assets.
For these investment pools, index funds are part of the mix alongside of some of the firm’s better actively managed funds. In some cases, funds that are closed to new investors are in the pool of funds available here. For example, T. Rowe Price Mid-Cap Growth (RPMGX) is a fine fund that is included in this program even though it is closed to new retail accounts.
