An Endowment is a permanent fund that enables you to provide annual income for programs, projects or initiatives of particular interest to you. An endowment fund can be created with a gift of $25,000 or more. You may choose to specify in the guidelines of your endowment that the principal of the fund you create remains intact, producing an income to be perpetually distributed according to your wishes. Or you may allow the principal to be used, over time, to fund what you care about the most.
You may establish and endowment through a gift of cash, securities, or other property. You may use other assets including life insurance, charitable remainder trusts, charitable annuities, retirement accounts or philanthropic funds.
Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community Day School is one of Generations endowment building program’s highest performing schools. With gifted and dedicated professional and volunteer leadership, they have surpassed the projects’ benchmarks and established a great foundation for their future. Mirowitz is an outstanding example of what a school can achieve!
