Endowment Fund

Established in 1992, the fund is designed to be the legacy for the future and be the chief source of income for all charitable activities of the Foundation.  The Endowment fund will be invested. 

The Endowment Fund is the Foundation’s legacy to future generations of Altrusans and the communities they support with their imagination, inspiration and involvement. Contributions to the Endowment Fund insure the ability of Altrusans to be good citizens in the communities where they live and work.  

Interest income from the Endowment Fund provides substantial support to the Grants Program and also funds the Foundation’s Community Leadership Award.  In addition to a plaque, a monetary award of $2,000 will be given to for the project conducted by the recipient of this award or to a local charity designated by the individual.  In addition, the Endowment also provides the funding for the Association’s Letha H. Brown Literacy Awards, the Dr. Nina Fay Calhoun International Relations Awards, the ASTRA scholarships and the ASTRA Club Service Awards.
