What is an endowment?

An endowment is a lasting investment in the future of our organization, providing a stable and sustainable source of funding for generations to come.  By contributing to our endowment, donors create a permanent legacy that ensures the continued success and impact of our mission.

Endowment funds are invested wisely, with the goal of generating income that can be used to support our programs and initiatives in perpetuity.  This means that every donation made to our endowment has the potential to grow over time, multiplying its impact and enabling us to serve our community for years to come.

Unlike one-time donations that are spent immediately, endowment contributions are carefully managed and preserved for the long term.  This allows us to weather economic fluctuations and unforeseen challenges while maintaining our commitment to serving those in need.

In essence, an endowment is more than just a financial asset – it's a testament to the enduring dedication and generosity of our supporters.  By contributing to our endowment, you become part of a legacy that will positively impact lives for generations to come.
