The Freeman Challenges

The rewards of an endowment are many: it signifies a major turning point in an organization’s growth and creates an aura of permanence; it conveys a ‘seal of approval’; it can contribute to the long-term stability of an organization; it can generate income long after contributions are made; and, it’s a powerful way to pursue long-term organizational goals. Are you ready?
