Endowment Fund


 

The work that we do year in and year out - sustainably developing people, places and plans of the eastside of Detroit - gains invaluable support from our endowment fund. Gifts to our endowment fund often reflect the wishes of families or organizations with deep ties to the eastside, who hope preserve the heritage of neighborhoods they cherish by sustaining our work long into the future. 

Eastside Community Network's endowment fund is managed by our Finance Committee - a group of seasoned investment professionals who assure that financial prudence drives our investment strategies to grow the fund while providing a stable source of income. 

 

Making an endowment gift
