We can help you customize your charitable gift in a number of ways, including both endowed and non-endowed gifts. An endowed gift usually is invested for the long-term. It generates income each year as the principle continues to grow. Endowments can be permanent or for a specific amount of time. A non-endowed gift can be invested and distributed for any period of time.
