Thanks to a generous donor, the Allan Hancock College Foundation has created a new, permanent endowment fund open to donations of any level.  The beauty of the fund, according to Jeff Cotter, foundation executive director, is that unlike one-time gifts, donations to the endowment fund remain intact and are invested.  Only the investment revenue is spent.

The fund’s initial donor wanted to “establish a way for individuals or groups to give ‘permanent gifts’ that could benefit all of the college’s programs forever, in perpetuity,” he said.  Normally, to establish an endowment, a donor needs to start with a minimum of $10,000.

“With the Allan Hancock College Endowment Fund, donors can be part of a permanent endowment for the college no matter the level of their gift, and because the new fund is set up to support all the programs of the college, a donor can give a gift to the fund and know that it will used where the need is greatest,” he added.
