The Endowment Fund
What is an Endowment Fund?
An endowment is a fund that is “permanently restricted” which means the original donation is never spent. Only a portion of the interest or earnings from the endowment (typically 5%) is spent on an annual basis. The Friends of Pleasant View endowment fund is managed by the Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin. Professional money managers oversee the fund, investing in stocks, bonds, and other instruments.
What are the benefits of an Endowment?
An endowment contributes to the financial health and strength of Pleasant View by providing the capability to continue our services into the future. Since only the interest and earnings from the fund can be used, not the principal that anchors it, the Fund is a symbol of permanence for our organization’s standing in Green County.
Why should I give to Pleasant View’s Endowment Fund?
Your gift supports Pleasant View’s mission to provide compassionate nursing and rehab care that is affordable for the elderly in our community. Your donation will leave a legacy, ensuring that the future generations of Green County citizens who need our services will be cared for. Also, the Friends of Pleasant View Foundation is a member of the Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin, a registered 501(c)(3) Corporation. Every gift is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
