What is an Endowment?

Gifts for our Endowment fund are in perpetuity, generally only the interest is accessible.  The endowment funds are invested by our Board of Directors to produce income, which supports and improves our educational program. A portion of the income is reinvested to help the fund grow.

GreenUP’s long commitment to provide educational access for children and youth of all ages is sustained by the investment of our donors and by GreenUP’s wise investment practices. This had led to the establishment of GreenUP’s Endowment Fund with the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough. Increasing the endowment ensures that GreenUP continues to generate income to promote educational excellence and provide a stable source of financial support for student aid, department support, and the preservation, upgrades, and maintenance of facilities.

Whatever a donor’s particular area of interest, the charity’s endowment policies allow each vision to become—and remain—a reality.
