Water to Thrive Endowment Fund
Leave a Legacy

By joining this community of generous donors and giving to the Water to Thrive Endowment Fund, you will create a lasting legacy. Your investment will ensure the long-term sustainability of our organization.

Our vision for the Endowment Fund is to build a foundation of financial security to ensure continuity in serving those in need of clean water for many generations to come.

What is an Endowment?

An endowment is a permanent investment fund for Water to Thrive’s long-term security. Donor contributions make up the principle and are invested in a diversified portfolio.  The portfolio is managed by Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing and dividends are paid out at the discretion of the Board. The investment income is unrestricted, and is distributed upon advisement by the endowment committee, and approved by Water to Thrive’s Board of Directors.
