Endowment Bequest

An endowment is a self-renewing perpetuity resource that the Foundation holds and reinvest. The resources are held forever and are not utilized. The earning from the investment is what is used to help fund the donors cause.

Named endowment funds may be given for general operating and development, institutional scholarships or to help the Foundation in specific areas.

Endowment Bequest may be given to the Foundation for a general purpose or for a specific purpose restricted or unrestricted. For more information, contact the Office of planned Giving for policy and the general guidelines and examples for using named endowments and bequest language. Consider helping our organization by giving a planned endowment gift. Call AACF for assistance with a donation. All contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
