Supporting the Community’s Foundation
The Administrative Endowment is the engine that drives our mission of inspiring a culture of giving. It allows Foundation staff to provide invaluable philanthropic expertise and knowledge of local needs to donors and nonprofits who are working to make a difference in southwest Washington. Your gift moves the Foundation beyond “just getting by.” It helps establish long-term sustainability for our mission, because contributions to the Administrative Endowment are permanently invested and generate an enduring, consistent revenue stream. Each year, as the fund grows, the Administrative Endowment distributes 5 percent of its total value to the Community Foundation, while excess earnings are reinvested to continue growing the fund and the organization’s future. Thus, gifts today provide an infinite amount of support for the Community Foundation’s vital mission.
