As proposed: At least $13,000,000, or 87% of grant will be invested for long-term usage and impact with13% used for immediate or short-term impact.


Note: Endowment/Investment numbers are based on average earnings of 5% per year. From endowment earnings, 20% will be retained for reinvestment into the corpus; for example, $5,000,000 is estimated to produce earnings of $250,000 per year, of which $50,000 would be reinvested and $200,000 would be available for use. This allows forslow but continuous growth of the corpus (principal) and should provide for slow, continuous rises in the amount needed annually (due to tuition increases, increased salary costs, etc.). It also provides some protection against bad market years when earnings are poor.
