What is the Endowment?
To ensure the Foundation's strong future, the Endowment is invested in perpetuity. A portion of the fund is allocated to benefit Foundation programs every year, providing an extra stream of income to meet the increasing demand for the Foundation's programs and to ensure the Foundation's ability to meet urgent human needs into the future.
The Endowment includes Benefactors and Bequest Society members.
A Benefactor is someone who makes a provision in their estate plans for The Rotary Foundation or makes a $1,000 gift to the Endowment.
Individuals or couples who have made commitments in their estate of $10,000 or more become members of the Bequest Society.
