Power of Endowments

Through the power of endowments, a gift to the foundation is preserved in perpetuity. Dollars are invested for long-term growth, benefiting the community for generations.

In 1974, the Scioto Foundation was established with a gift of $200,000 from the estate of Bertha T. Johnson. Since then, the foundation has received a total of $39,675,264 in contributions while paying out $29,330,907 in scholarships and grants. If the funds were not endowed, only $10,344,356 dollars would be available. However, through careful investing, the Scioto Foundation’s 2022 year-end market value was $46,348,112 dollars! Combine the asset total with the amount of grants paid, comes to 75 million dollars, almost double the amount of contributions the Scioto Foundation has received. What a return on investment!

Scioto Foundation offers various endowment types and plans to cater to our donor’s legacy. Whether it is a large gift or a small gift that can be built over time, Scioto Foundation can help the donor meet their charity goals.
