An endowment is a fund that is restricted. Only the interest from the fund can be spent, not the principal that anchors the endowment. Only a portion of the interest or earnings from the endowment is spent on an annual basis in order to ensure that the original funds will grow over time.
The Endowment Fund reaches beyond our annual fundraising campaigns in order to secure longer term funding to support our valuable programs, facilities and services to the community we serve in the Cowichan Valley.
In the comments section of the online payment form, you have the option of specifying that your donation go to the Endowment Fund.
