Basic Endowments for Episcopal Schools

Tuesday, January 17, 2017 • 2:00-4:00 p.m. (EDT)

Endowments play a unique role in our schools. They honor and protect past gifts. They underwrite future possibilities. To effectively promote an endowment we need to understand clearly what an endowment is, how it is best organized, invested and spent. Join the Episcopal Church Foundation for this important webinar that will review best practices for endowment management, share sample structure documents, and answer key questions about managing an endowment including a discussion of investment policies and spending rules. Trust among your donors starts with a well-structured and well-managed endowment.
