Pat and Shelly were recently married. They both had been dedicated volunteers at their favorite charity for many years. They wanted to make certain the charity's 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 the charity continue its programs on an ongoing basis.
Shelly: I also felt that the gift would provide a legacy for us. We were both thrilled that our gift would keep on giving to a cause we love.
