Is your organization considering establishing an endowment fund? Perhaps you have already established a fund and are building your knowledge around growing it.

There are many ways to give and grow an endowment and it is important to recognize that different strategies exist. MCN invites you to join financial advisor Ben Prchal for a workshop that will bring focus to what endowment funds can provide an organization.

Topics covered in this workshop:

  • The role of an endowment fund in an organization’s overall financial composition
  • How the fund works
