The future happens here.
Our future generations depend on the vision and generosity of those willing to make a gift today. A gift to an endowed fund, when co-invested with countless others, has exponential potential to impact our community in big ways.
The needs of our community continue to grow and change. Endowed funds provide a permanent source of funding for visionary projects that address community needs over the long-term horizon.
What is an endowment fund?
An endowment fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding. It is designed to preserve the principal of the fund while using a portion of the investment earning for annual grantmaking.
The Catalyst Endowment is a permanent source of funding for projects in all aspects of community well-being. As our community evolves, so do our needs with regard to education, economic development, arts and culture, health and human services, urban revitalization and the environment. Gifts to the Catalyst Endowment fuel community improvement in perpetuity.
Catalyst Endowment donors entrust the Community Foundation with the evaluation of community needs and the administration of grants to implement programs over the long-term horizon.
