2 What is an Endowment?

3 “Certain forms of NCOs, including public organizations, religious organizations, foundations and ANOs, may establish endowments (Article 2, Law on Endowments). An endowment can be established using funds given by a donor(s) to an NCO. Donations to the endowment can only be made in the form of money. The law requires that endowments be managed by a qualified management company under a contract with the NCO owner of the endowment. Income generated from an endowment can be used by an NCO to finance its statutory activities. The minimum term for establishing an endowment is ten years.“
