If funds in the amount required by this paragraph are available from the municipality which established the foundation, the foundation may invest all of its funds in the manner provided in paragraph (2).

(2) Any funds exceeding the amount described in paragraph (1) may be invested in such investments that may be lawful for fiduciaries in this state and also may be invested in such investments as would be lawful for a private corporation or other foundation having purposes similar to the foundation. No moneys derived pursuant to any tax may be invested under this paragraph.

(c) Nothing in this act shall effect the status of the foundation as a municipal entity.

(d) The provisions of this section shall apply to foundations whether created before or after the effective date of this act. Any investment of funds by a foundation prior to July 1, 1997, which would have complied with the provisions of this section, as amended by this act, are hereby validated.
