How A Fund Works

Giving Made Simple

An Endowed Fund can sound complicated.  It is actually relatively simple, and we have created a simple flow chart depicting how your donation moves from a gift to a grant or scholarship.


Here is how it works:

1. Your donations are directed to an Endowed Fund.

2.  The Endowed Fund is invested in a variety of ways and managed by local advisors.

3.  Gains from the investments are used to make annual distributions.

4.  Grants and Scholarships are presented to recipients.

It's that simple.  Your gift enters into an endowed fund that never goes away, creating a lasting legacy in our community.
