WHAT IS AN ENDOWMENT FUND?An endowment fund is an income source where the principal is never spent. The interest from the Endowment Fund is the only portion of the fund spent to support the work of the Medicine Hat Women's Shelter Society.
Bequests:Gifts or personal property, real estate or a specific sum of money.
Life Insurance:Through an existing policy or transfer ownership of existing policy.
Direct Gifts:Recognized with a Tax Receipt.
Retirement Funds:A charitable gift of all or any portion of funds remaining at death.
Gifts That Give Back:Gifts that provide a future gift for the society and a lifetime of income for the donor. This type of gift is irrevocable and provides immediate tax benefits for the donor. E.g. Remainder Trust Donations to the Shelter Legacy Program are held in an endowment
fund with the Community Foundation of South Eastern Alberta.
