Determine the longevity of the fund

An agency fund can be endowed or non-endowed.

An endowment means WF invests the capital and provides your organization with annual income from the fund, dependent upon investment market performance. The initial investment remains un-touched, ensuring that your gift is a permanent source of funding for your organization to use according to your guidelines. View Agency Endowed Agreement

A non-endowed fund utilizes your donated capital in its entirety. It does not generate interest over time because it is not incorporated into one of our investment pools. When all of the capital has been administered according to your guidelines, the fund ceases to exist. View Agency Non-Endowed Agreement
