Endowed gifts may be established to benefit a specific program or to provide an on-going scholarship and are named funds that can be used to honor or memorialize a loved one. Endowed funds are gifts for eternity and grow at a surprising rate, both in terms of their total value and the annual support they provide. See an illustration of the impact of an endowed gift here.
These gifts may support an existing program or be designated for a specific purpose that falls within the mission and guidelines of McLeod Health. If the purpose of the gift is not consistent with the long-range plans of McLeod Health, the contributor will be given the choice of re-designating the gift.
Endowed Funds will be established with a minimum gift of $5,000 and will not be fully endowed until it reaches $25,000, which can be paid over a five-year pledge period. Funds will not be awarded until fully endowed.
