The Permanent Fund
To Secure Tomorrow...
The Permanent Fund ensures The Rotary Foundation's ability
to meet the urgent needs of the future through an endowment.
An endowed contribution is a gift that the Foundation holds in
perpetuity. The gift is invested, and only a portion of its
investment return is used for purposes specified by the donor.
To guard against inflation, the remaining investment return is
added to the principal. The goal is to ensure that the
principal maintains its real value over time. Thus, gifts to
the Permanent Fund will grow and continue to support The
Rotary Foundation for years to come.
