Ensuring Your Foundation’s Future
Dedicated in perpetuity, The Hand-in-Hand endowment was established in 2002 to ensure the future funding of programs that advance your Foundation’s mission. Each year, the Foundation allocates approximately 5% of the Endowment (never below corpus) to support our mission to fund projects and programs that support all of funeral service in building lasting relationships in the community.
What does “endowment” mean?
An endowment is an investment fund set up by the Foundation in which regular withdrawals from the invested capital are used to support the funding of programs, projects and initiatives.
Who oversees the Hand-in-Hand Endowment?
The Funeral Service Foundation is committed to time-tested investment strategies and responsible fiscal management. The Finance Committee, made up of members of the Board of Trustees and other professionals across funeral service, oversees the management of these funds, currently more than $6 million.
