Pat and Shelly were recently married. They had both been dedicated volunteers at their favorite charity for many years. They wanted to make certain their programs continued even after they were gone.
Pat: We appreciated the organization's work. We hoped to register our commitment and support by making a gift that would last well into the future.
Shelly: A staff member at the organization asked us to consider making a gift to the endowment. We learned that the endowment was a fund that served as a permanent source of income for the organization's projects.
Pat: I liked that giving to the endowment would help my favorite charity continue its programs on an ongoing basis.
Shelly: I also felt that the gift would provide a legacy for me and Pat. We were both thrilled that our gift would keep on giving to a cause we love.
