SGS Endowment Fund
Purpose of the SGS Endowment Fund
An endowment fund is a perpetual fund from which only the earnings (or income) are distributed. Income generated from the endowment fund may be used to help finance projects and initiatives that support the mission of SGS, but for which funding might not otherwise be available. This fund is separate from the SGS operating budget which is used for general operating expenses.
SGS Endowment Fund Goal
The goal of the SGS Endowment Campaign is to raise $50,000 for the endowment fund which will generate income to enable SGS to support special projects and initiatives consistent with its mission and objectives.
While the endowment will gladly accept deferred gifts such as trusts and charitable gift annuities, the primary objective of this initial endowment campaign will be to secure monetary gifts to help establish the endowment and enable it to support special initiatives consistent with the mission of SGS.
