Endowment Contributions

An endowment is a fund where the principal (gifts to the fund) is never spent; only the growth on the fund is distributed.

The endowment fund for the Conservancy is another way your giving can promote the long term goals of protecting easements on land. Endowments to this fund allow the Conservancy to provide responsible stewardship now and into the future. All donations to the Cadillac Area Land Conservancy Endowment Fund are invested under the direction of the Cadillac Area Community Foundation.
