An endowment fund is a gift that will support your philanthropic interests today and well into the future. Your gift, or capital, will be invested in CPAR’s long-term investment pool, earning interest. The capital remains unspent, but each year, the interest generated is used to fund the core program area(s) that means the most to you. An endowment fund can take the form of a large one-time gift to CPAR, or it can be cumulative gifts that add up to the dollar amount of the endowment fund that you commit to. You may establish an endowment fund in your name, your family’s name, or in memory of a loved one. A minimum threshold of $10,000 is required to set up an endowment fund with CPAR. If you wish, you can allow loved ones to contribute towards your legacy endowment fund in lieu of gifts on milestone occasions. It’s a wonderful way to share your culture of philanthropy and make a significant impact during your lifetime. And a charitable tax receipt will be provided by CPAR for every gift made towards your fund.
