What is an endowment and should we have one? Nonprofit leaders, development staff and board members are invited to join the Community Foundation of East Central Illinois for the first of a two-part series on understanding and building strong and sustainable endowments to fuel your organization’s future. In this first session, learn how to assess your organization’s readiness to establish an endowment.
