What is an endowment?

An endowment is a permanent fund that distributes the income it generates through NCCF’s prudent, long-term investment strategy, steered by our team of outside professional asset managers.

Because your dollars are pooled for investment with other NCCF funds, you can maximize endowment growth and your giving. The graph below illustrates how your fund and grant dollars can grow!

The Power of Endowment

This chart shows the growth of a $25,000 endowment over 20 years. The fund’s balance increased 48 percent, while granting 5% per year. This increase was achieved with no additional contributions to the fund. Imagine the power if regular contributions were made!
