An endowed gift can create a new endowment or add to an existing endowment. The principal of the endowment is invested and a portion of the principal’s earnings are used each year to support our mission.

A portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in your honor. The rest of the income is reinvested in the fund; that’s what allows it to support us indefinitely.

How to Fund Your Gift

You can create an endowed gift using the following assets:


A gift of cash is one of the most popular ways to support us after your lifetime. You may gift a specified sum of money or a percentage of your estate.

Appreciated Securities

A gift in your will or trust of securities often allows you to make larger gifts than you could during your lifetime.
