Endowment Fund

What is the Endowment Fund?

  • The Endowment Fund was created to help the club continue to support disadvantaged youth through downturns in the economy or the loss of a major fundraiser.
  • Our Fund is structured so the principal amount invested remains intact, while investment income is available to benefit disadvantage youth in Sonoma County.
  • The Endowment Fund is administered by the Community Foundation of Sonoma County and is professionally managed (currently by Morgan Stanley).
