Endowment: How Does It Work?
The Airdrie and
District Community Foundation
aims to build endowments for the
continued benefit of Airdrie and
An endowment is a gift which
provides a never-ending source of
income to the community. It differs
from other types of charitable gifts
in that it remains actively
invested. The original gift remains
untouched. The investment income is
used to support local charities.
Each endowment fund may carry the name of a person, a family or a business.
Endowed gifts are pooled and invested and become a valuable and self-sustaining source of revenue.
Endowment funds are combined and
placed in a professionally managed
investment portfolio, in compliance
with our established Investment
