Reach beyond annual giving and become a builder of the Providence Farm legacy. Through a bequest or endowment gift, you create long term support to Farm programs, security to our participants, and sustainability for therapeutic care in the Cowichan Valley.
How Does it Work?
An endowment is a fund that is restricted. Only the interest from the fund can be spent, not the principal that anchors the endowment. Only a portion of the interest or earnings from the endowment is spent on an annual basis in order to ensure that the original funds will grow over time.
We have both a legacy endowment fund and an education fund started by the Sisters of St Ann for us and managed via the Victoria Foundation.
Endowments provide a consistent source of funding for the farm and will enable us to continue our work helping the most marginalized people well into the future. These funds also provide a lasting legacy for donors that will contribute indefinitely and change lives for the better forever.
