About Endowments

Permanent Endowments are set up for the purpose of expending a portion of the interest earnings. This ensures the longevity of the donor’s gift for the designated program/scholarship. A minimum $5,000 gift is needed to begin this type of fund and the donor has up to 5 years to complete the Endowment
If you are interested in establishing an endowment, we would be happy to help you. Please contact us at lcpsfoundation@lcps.net or (575) 527-5888.
