Endowments are an investment in the future. They are designed to provide support for people living with life threatening illnesses for years to come.
An Endowment Fund can also provide a lasting personal legacy for you or a loved one. For example, the Fund can be established In Honor of . . . a living person or In Memory of . . . a person who has passed.
Importantly, an Endowment Fund gives you the flexibility to designate exactly where your gift is to be used.
How to Create an Endowment Fund An Endowment Fund can be underwritten by current or deferred gifts. If you establish an Endowment Fund now, then you can encourage your children or other loved ones providing a family legacy. You can also leave an endowment in your Will.
