The Foundation's Endowment Fund is simply a pool of assets we hold and invest to provide long-term growth interest and dividends. The principal of the Endowment fund is never spent, ensuring stability for our local healthcare needs far into the future. Some of the earnings are used each year to provide funds to the medical and healthcare needs of our local area. So, the larger the endowment fund, the more dollars available for meeting immediate and annual needs.
This is why we say that gifts given to the endowment fund "keep giving, year after year." They make a difference for a lifetime!
