I am looking for a word which is a synonym of, or could be a euphemism for investor or shareholder. It should be longer than investor, but shorter than shareholder; about 9 or 10 letters long. I've googled, but so far haven’t found a word that fits the need. Thank you.

Not a crossword puzzle, just creating a tribute for a dear friend, where privacy is important; thus a euphemism could work. It should not have a negative connotation though, just a word that would be a little less obvious than investor, or shareholder.

FINANCIER would fit, but it’s too specific. A more generic word is needed. Thank you, though.

Boglehead and Benefactor would both fit as well, but they are also too specific. Thank you both.

Why not investor if that fits the context of what you want? I see no negative connotations with that word, only positive ones. Furthermore, a person can invest in many things, not just finances.

Carolinaman, Investor seems like the best word to me so far too, but I am not the only one deciding on or financing this tribute, thus the wording needs to meet the approval of a few others. Since this tribute will be in a permanent format which may appear on social media in the future (of which we have no control), we’d like to circumvent potential abuse with that.
