April 10, 1998 Southeastern Virginia Jewish News 7 Tidewater Jewish Foundat, on News What Your Endowment Will Do By Dr. Arthur S. Kaplan, Chairman Tidewater Jewish Foundation ndowment funds are growing in popularity as more and more donors discover the remarkable benefits they provide. In fact, perhaps you have even thought of creating one of these funds yourself. Your endowment, should you establish one, will accomplish many things. Here are just three to consider: Your Endowment Will Endure Dr. Arthur S. Tidewater Jewish Foundation endowments Kaplan are like artesian wells; they never run dry. That's because most funds prohibit us from spending the principal. Only the income, which is defined by our Spending Policy, can be used to meet the purposes of the endowment. For example, let's say you create an endowment to provide camp scholarships. Once established, your endowment will generate these financial grants every year. Even after you're gone, your endowment will live in perpetuity. A hundred years from now, campers will benefit from your prudent planning and generosity. This enduring quality makes endowments the perfect tool to create a lasting legacy! Buildings may crumble and programs may change, but your endowment will endure! Your Endowment Will Enable Regular cash gifts to the Federation's Annual Campaign certainly help the Jewish community meet our financial obligations. What happens when the donor dies? Through our Annual Campaign Endowment (ACE) program, you can perpetuate your gift. What if the Campaign suffers in a lean year? Because of their enduring quality, endowments enable community organizations to plan with confidence. They can project endowment income and develop programs accordingly. Sometimes our donors create endowment funds to enable us to accomplish things we would not ordinarily be able to do through normal budget channels. For example, an endowment may provide ongoing resources to a Jewish agency for such things as staff enrichment, specialized programs and additional eqmpment purchases. Your endowment will enable the Tidewater Jewish Foundation to help our community organizations to be stronger and more viable. It will help us not only meet current needs, but face the future on solid ground. Your Endowment Will Ennoble When you create an endowment, you ennoble the Jewish community. You deepen our financial foundation and lift us higher in the minds of our constituency. Through your endowment, you say, "This is an organization worthy of my resources, l expect the Foundation to be fulfilling its mission far into the future." Your prudent and forward-looking decision encourages us and challenges us to honor your "investment." Ennoblement spreads to your family as well. Your children and grandchildren have added reason to appreciate their heritage. The ongoing impact of your endowment reminds them of who they are. It lifts their own sights and inspires a benevolent spirit. Your endowment will do more than endure, enable and ennoble. Philip S. Rovner, Executive Director, can give you the whole picture. He'll outline further benefits and show how easy - and meaningful - a Foundation endowment can be. To learn more about your own endowment, complete and mail the coupon below.
