An endowment gift helps safeguard KCU's future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowment donations are invested and designed to last in perpetuity. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at KCU. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.
Scenario: Drs. Susan and Charlie Campton
Longtime supporters Drs. Susan and Charlie Campton have two goals: First, they want to make sure KCU continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Vivian and Arthur Campton.
Drs. Campton make a $25,000 donation to KCU to establish the Vivian and Arthur Campton Scholarship, which KCU invests, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to award a scholarship to a deserving KCU student. Plus, Drs. Campton get a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes because they made a lump-sum gift. Each year in honor of Vivian and Arthur's anniversary, Drs. Campton make a $5,000 contribution to the Vivian and Arthur Campton Scholarship fund so that the amount awarded to deserving students can continue to grow.
