A: An endowment gift is made to ensure the financial support of an organization into the future by producing revenue which is generated from various fixed income instruments. Only a portion of the income produced is used to support programs or operations of the organization. There are several ways endowment gifts are made. The first is by making an outright gift to the Endowment Fund using cash, securities, and real or personal property. The second and most common way is to make a provision in a will or living trust to leave a portion of a person’s estate to New Directions for Women. In contrast, an outright gift is made for the immediate use by the organization to support the costs for its programs and mission. Usually it has no restrictions put upon its use and is directed to the greatest immediate need.
A: Yes. More information will be available shortly on our Giving Opportunities page.
