The Legacy Fund is a permanent endowment fund. No part of the fund principal is used for grants or to pay for administrative costs. Only fund earnings are used to pay for grants or increase the fund principal. Annual grants are now made under the direction of the Board of Directors from the Operating Account. Once the principal in this fund passes $1,000,000, annual grants to local nonprofit groups will total over $70,000 at current rates of return. This community nest egg will serve to help many for years to come. The larger the Legacy Fund grows, the more it will give back in perpetuity. Gifts to the Legacy fund may be by check, credit card, transfer of stocks or bonds and by bequest from your estate.
