Endowed gifts are held in perpetuity. A named endowment is created through the establishment of a permanent fund that is professionally invested and managed. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware invests the initial gift and spends only a portion of the average annual investment return. The remaining income is added to the principal. A benefactor who makes an endowment gift today may be confident that it will continue to support its intended purpose in the future.
You can establish an endowed fund by making an outright gift, through a pledge payable over a number of years, or through a planned gift.
For more information on endowed giving, please contact Sharon Biddle, CFRE, Executive Director, Major & Planned Gifts, at (302) 658-1870 or [email protected] .
