Our Endowment

The Men’s Fund Endowment is a permanent resource created to address the changing needs and priorities in our community. By building the Endowment, men philanthropists of today are building a long-term source of support for future needs. Half of the gifts given to the Men’s Fund are added to its endowment with the remaining funds used for present grantmaking for current needs in our community.
