Named Endowed Funds

Many donors choose to establish named endowments as a way of creating lasting legacies and ongoing resources supporting the education of future generations. Endowments begin with a minimum gift commitment of $25,000. This gift commitment can be given in a lump sum or over an established period of time as determined by the Foundation Trustees. A portion of the fund's principal is invested and a portion of the fund's accrued interest is applied in support of the fund criteria. Here are some examples:
