An Agency Endowment Matching Program to start new or grow existing funds.
Agency Endowment Matching is a way to support nonprofit organizations and agencies in building endowments in the Wabash Valley. Agency Endowment funds invest in the mission and the future of a nonprofit organization or agency by providing general operating support, stability during cyclical income variances and income for areas of high importance to the organization or agency.
Agency Endowments are opened by nonprofit organizations or agencies wishing to establish a fund that is kept in perpetuity at the Wabash Valley Community Foundation. Annually, this fund provides an ongoing stream of revenue generated by the investment of the principal.
The Wabash Valley Community Foundation will match all new contributions $1-for-$1, up to $5,000, to an eligible Agency Endowment fund from November 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024. Please note that, of this amount, the Community Foundation will only match up to $1,000 per donor family or business. All contributions must be made to the Agency Endowment Fund at the Community Foundation to be matched. Transfers from the Nonprofit Organization or Agency will not be matched.
