Donate to the JLC Endowment Fund
The Junior League of Columbia (JLC) Endowment Fund has been established with the Central Carolina Community Foundation to guarantee that the vision and commitment of the League remain strong both now and in the future. An endowment is a sum of money invested, the returns of which benefit an organization in perpetuity. Begun in 1999 with a gift from a generous Sustainer, the JLC Endowment Fund has been a strategic move for the League to ensure it continues to impact the community.
To give a gift that has lasting benefits, any individual, group or business may contribute to the Junior League of Columbia Endowment Fund at any time. The Endowment Fund is also an excellent vehicle through which to make an honorarium or memorial for someone associated with the League.
How Do I Make a Gift to the Endowment Fund?
There are several ways to make gifts to the Endowment Fund, including marketable securities, cash, checks, closely held securities, and real estate. Gifts may be made outright or through an estate plan or other planned gift.
