WHAT IS AN ENDOWMENT FUND? An endowment fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding. Endowment assets are invested and each year a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose. Any earnings are used to build the market value of the fund and support its goal in perpetuity. HOW IS THE DISTRIBUTION FROM A FUND USED? The spending distribution from each endowment fund is used to support the purpose as specified in the endowment agreement between the donor and Levine Academy. WHO MANAGES LEVINE’S ENDOWMENT ASSETS? The Levine Academy endowment funds are managed by the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation (DJCF). The DJCF is a tax-exempt, non-profit with a mission to build permanent endowments, donor-advised, and named funds for the public benefit. ESTABLISHING AN ENDOWMENT FUND CREATES A PERMANENT LEGACY OF SUPPORT FOR LEVINE. LEARN MORE AT: http://www.djcf.org
