ALBUQUERQUE CHAPTER OF MOAA ENDOWMENT

The Chapter has recently established the Albuquerque Chapter of MOAA Endowment at the Albuquerque Community Foundation (ACF). The Board took this action to enhance our current, and especially our future, ability to contribute to worthy charitable organizations that help our military personnel, veteran’s and their families. This endowment will provide for enhanced charitable giving in normal years and funds to maintain our donations through lean years. Each year the endowment will make available to the Chapter about 4 – 5% of the value that the Board can use for our giving program. In good years, the Board can decide to add to the principle of the endowment. The endowment can also be a part of our member’s estate planning and giving for those who are so inclined. Working with the ACF gives us an established organization to manage our funds ensuring that our charitable goals are met over the long haul. ACF performs this function for over 90 charitable organizations and 300 individuals in Albuquerque and has about $56M that their investment Board supervises. The ACF was founded in 1978 and its endowments are professionally managed. More information about the ACF, can be found at their website,http://www.albuquerquefoundation.org. The Chapter point of contact is the treasurer, Clint Whisonant, clintwhiz@hotmail.com or 505-299-4836 (home) or 505-410-1417 (cell)
