Agency Endowment Funds

Agency endowments enable nonprofit organizations to establish endowments to support their work in perpetuity.  An agency endowment differs from a designated fund because it is actually established by the agency and not by a single donor.


An agency endowment fund is ideal for organizations that:

  • Are interested in creating permanent support for their organization
  • Have a healthy operating budget with resources in reserve
  • Have a broad base of support
  • Are stable and have a plan for long-term sustainability
  • Have donors who share in the vision of creating an agency endowment fund and want to support the organization in perpetuity
  • There is no fee to establish an agency endowment fund.
  • A $25,000 minimum opening gift is required.
