An Endowment is a financial asset donation made to a non-profit group or institution in the form of investment funds or other property that has a stated purpose at the bequest of the donor. Most endowments are designed to keep the principal amount intact while using the investment income from dividends for charitable efforts. Only the income from endowment gifts will be allocated annually where the organizational need is the greatest, leaving the principal intact.
