What is an endowment fund?
An endowment fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding. Endowment assets are invested. Each year, a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose, and any earnings in excess of this distribution are used to build the fund’s market value. In this way, an endowment fund can grow and provide support for its designated purpose in perpetuity.
What does my gift support?
A gift to the Suzanne Aker Legacy Endowment honors our founder and builds a financial base that will help secure the future of Ballet Lubbock.
