What is an Endowment Fund?

While one-time charitable donations ease immediate needs; an endowment builds capital, forever.

Through the Foundation, funds that have reached an endowment level are strategically invested with a focus on long-term growth. Your endowed fund will generate interest, which is used to provide grants to nonprofits. These grants directly serve the people and services in Chippewa County.

You can start an endowment or grow your fund toward the endowment level. You can also choose what type of community need your fund will fulfill.
