Revolving Account: A n account into which soft money is transferred; the balance at the end of the fiscal year typically rolls forward. Summer/Winter term accounts, DRIF accounts are considered revolving. Plant Funds: A central account, tied to the program, where programs transfer or “save” funds for future construction and renovation project. A prudent way to manage fund balances. Restricted Funds : Funds received for which there is a proscribed purpose such as sponsored research grants and contracts and gifts for which the donor provided explicit directions. Administrators are responsible for assuring the funds are spent appropriately. Interest Income: Annual income generated by endowments, which are always held in one of the foundations. Income is typically slightly less than 5% of the endowment value. It is used to reimburse program for costs incurred by the endowed chair or related activity.
