One of the ways donors can have a profound impact on the future of NAM is by making a gift to the NAM Endowment Fund.
The NAM Endowment Fund was created in 2000 to enhance the financial stability of NAM, and ensure that NAM will always be here to help Neighbors in Need.
The NAM Endowment Fund has grown to over $3.1 million dollars and with a record gift this year of over $193,000, the NEF has distributed annual gifts to NAM totaling more than $1.1 million dollars.
Primarily funded by planned gifts, the NEF has a goal of growing to more than $10 million dollars over the next 10-15 years. Planned gifts to the NAM Endowment Fund can be made through stocks, bonds, life insurance, IRAs and other retirement assets, real estate and more. Planned gifts do not affect current cash flow and may provide tax benefits for the donor. Contributions to the NAM Endowment Fund can also be made as one-time gifts or as part of a regular IRA distribution.
We hope that you will give thoughtful consideration to making a current or planned gift commitment to the NAM Endowment Fund. Donors who make thoughtful planned gifts to NAM or to the NAM Endowment Fund become members of NAM's Legacy Society.
If you are interested in making a contribution to the NAM Endowment Fund or a planned gift to NAM or to the NEF, please contact Brian Carr at 281-885-4605 or [email protected].
