Endowment gifts are a wonderful way to create an everlasting legacy. Endowed funds are invested strategically to preserve their original value and generate income used to support the Library’s work for generations to come.
They enable the Library Foundation to protect endowed monies for future needs and provide annual revenue based on GTCF’s Endowment Spending Policy. GTCF handles all administrative details including investment management, eliminating the need to create an investment policy and monitor investments.
