Endowments & Financial Reserves

Terms such as "planned giving program," "endowment," or "reserves" describe funds which are set aside for the long term benefit of your organization. They are separate from annual operating funds, but are a very important part of your fundraising program. Reserves are critical to the success of your strategic plan as they demonstrate a long-term commitment to your organization's mission. The presence of healthy reserves on your balance sheet makes a statement to key stakeholders that your organization is responsibly managed and that gifts made through planned giving and other vehicles will contribute to long term sustainability.

While it may seem difficult to create and implement these long term strategies, Pathway Associates can provide you with a manageable plan.
