Endowment Funds

Establishing an Endowment Fund at Sholom Foundation

A Sholom Foundation Endowment Fund is a gift that lasts in perpetuity. The principal is invested, and income from the fund is allocated annually for the Sholom services, facilities, and programs. You may also designate a specific purpose for a fund.

An endowment fund may be established starting at $10,000 (cash or pledge) or $20,000 (deferred gift). The fund may be in your name or the name of a loved one. A plaque on the Walls of Honor on the Norman & Lisette Ackerberg Family Sholom West Campus in Minneapolis and the Rossy & Richard Shaller Family Sholom East Campus in St. Paul will honor fund donors. All endowment funds appear on our website, and donors may choose to designate their gift to any particular endowment fund.

Please call Joel Mandel, Executive Director, to learn more about establishing a Sholom Foundation endowment fund at 952-939-1593 or jmandel@sholom.com.
