Endowment Fund

Endowed funds provide a stable source of revenue for a charity's future. Because the principle is never spent and a portion of interest is reinvested, the fund can continue to grow. This brings meaningful support for an agency year after year.

The Endowment Fund was created in 1984. It is a permanent fund managed by Lower Cape Fear Hospice Foundation trustees to provide a perpetual source of income for essential agency programs and services. Financial contributions to the fund are invested and never spent. The interest earned is used to support the nonprofit, mission-driven activities Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCareCenter offers-hospice care, palliative care, end-of-life education, bereavement and grief counseling for all ages-all of which run at a deficit and depend on charitable contributions to continue.

One can contribute to the Endowment Fund in a variety of ways. Most donors prefer cash gifts and pledges. Friends, loved ones, and colleagues may be memorialized or honored by making a tribute in their name. Donors who give $100 or more join the Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCareCenter Circles of Caring.
