Endowments are not a common feature across fundraising portfolios in Australia yet they can provide so many benefits.
Endowments can be set up for the long-term, to provide a reliable, sustainable source of funding for the future. Alternatively, they can be set up to respond to an unexpected challenge or opportunity, to fund a grants program or generate income to extend an organisation’s capabilities.
Endowments enable donors to leave a lasting legacy with an understanding of how their donation will continue to serve the organisation into the future
This session will explore the value of endowment funds and some tips for your own endowment strategy such as defining your endowment’s purpose, the importance of selecting and understanding your key audience, the value proposition and how to measure the impact.
