OPRS is always looking to the future. Many donors want to ensure that the programs they support now will still be available for older adults in the years to come. Gifts to endowment help make this possible because they are structured to provide continuing income lasting for the life of the organization.
Endowment gifts are invested in perpetuity. In other words, OPRS may use the investment income it generates, but it may never spend the gift’s principal, leaving it as a permanent asset to support the donor’s selected purpose. Donors may direct their gifts to a specific purpose at a retirement community or Senior Independence location.
Donors may select from a variety of ways to give when establishing an endowment, with options for recognition and naming opportunities.
