The Honorary Co-Chairs discuss our Campaign for Sustainment Endowment Fund.
The Need in Nassau County
In the 30 years since Barnabas Center was founded, our Crisis Assistance Program has doubled in size, our Food Program has grown to the largest in Nassau County and our Medical and Dental programs are serving increasing numbers of uninsured patients. This Campaign for Sustainability Endowment fund was created to provide a safety net to weather future unforeseen events and circumstances, such as funding gaps, economic variances, unanticipated drop-offs in donations and annual giving, natural disasters and unexpected new needs of the community.
What exactly IS an Endowment?
An Endowment is similar to a savings account. The endowment funds are invested and Barnabas Center only utilizes the annual interest, 4-5 percent on average. The principle is never touched. The link below will explain this in greater detail.
There are numerous ways to help support our Endowment Fund including pledging/making current gifts and planning for future estate/will gifts. This endowment fund is managed by the Community Foundation of NE Florida. Please click on these links to access commitment forms.
We work hard to be good stewards of the money we receive, and are proud to have achieved and maintained Charity Navigator’s highest 4-star rating for ten consecutive years, a distinction accomplished by only 1% of U.S. non-profit organizations.
