Frequently Asked Questions

What is an endowment fund?

An endowment fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding. Endowment assets are invested. Each year, a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose, and any earnings in excess of this distribution are used to build the fund’s market value. In this way, an endowment fund can grow and provide support for its designated purpose in perpetuity. When you establish an endowment fund, you create a permanent legacy of support for Presbyterian Senior Living.

How will the fund be managed?

The fund will be managed by the PHI Investment Management Services board along with all restricted funds of PSL.

How will fund disbursements be handled?

The Resource Development Committee of the PSL Board of Trustees will approve all distributions.
