In the early ’80s, our Board of Directors established an endowment fund. This fund is “permanently restricted” in an accounting sense. We do not tap the principal for our operating expenses but use the yearly income generated through interest to help with our annual operating costs. A portion of the fund is managed by the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina and the balance is managed through our Finance and Audit Committee.
A contribution to the Endowment Fund offers the opportunity to help ensure a healthy future for Gardens. To contribute just indicate on your check that you wish to restrict your donation to the Endowment Fund. Our address:
