An endowment gift to Wesley Community Foundation today provides a brighter picture for our future and those we serve. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at Wesley. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support. (The minimum gift for a named endowment is $50,000.)
An Example of How It Works
Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: (1) they want to make sure Wesley continues to receive support after they're gone and (2) they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.
Susan and Charlie make a $75,000 donation to Wesley which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
