VIII. Expendable or Endowed Fund

Endowments are permanent funds established to carry out the donor’s philanthropic intentions in perpetuity. In essence, endowments are gifts that keep growing and giving. Assets are invested for growth, and the amount available for grants each year is based on a “spending rule” that currently distributes a maximum of 4.50% of the average market value of the fund over the preceding 13 quarters. (Note: this percentage rate can vary based on the economic growth forecast and is reviewed annually by the Investment Committee of AAF.)

Expendable funds permit distributions in any amount at any time.

* Please note, this option is currently available to funds with assets greater than or equal to $25,000. If upon the death of the last original donor the balance in the fund does not meet this required threshold for endowment, the fund shall remain an expendable fund.
