Each gift made to the Foundation generates change.
For instance, Helen gave $100 to the Foundation’s Legacy Endowment. So did Jim, Jane, Emily and so on. Those gifts are pooled with gifts given over the last 50+ years. Because only the growth is distributed from endowment funds – those original gifts are still generating more growth!
If Helen and friends cumulatively gave $10,000 and it was endowed for 25 years, those gifts alone would have generated $14,584 in grants…and those original gifts would now have grown to $20,328!
Each gift generates change…change in the quality of life, change in available opportunities, change in our local environment and economy.
