Securing the Future Endowment Campaign Update
It was announced at the ACGA Conference in St. Louis that as a part of the $500,000 “Securing the Future” endowment campaign, $150,000 would be dedicated to endowing the “Frank D. Minton Executive Leadership Academy.” When the Academy is fully endowed it will allow the Council to enhance research to better serve the charitable community through the presentation and sponsoring of white papers, webinars and a valuable and unique education track designed specifically for the CFO’s at the biennial conference.
The remainder of the endowment will provide a margin of excellence for the ongoing efforts of the ACGA board to enrich value to all charities across the country.
In addition to the “Securing the Future” endowment campaign, the ACGA board has a goal of increasing the “Terry Simmons Scholars Endowment” to $150,000. Over two thirds of this goal has been raised or is committed. In 1994, 95, Terry Simmons and his team on Charitable Accord helped pass legislation that allows charities to issue charitable gift annuities today.
If charitable gift annuities are a part of your planned giving program, we would welcome your participation individually and as an institution in supporting one or both of these endowment initiatives. Gifts can be made online here.
