What exactly are “foundations”? Foundations can generally be referred to as assets (usually cash accounts invested in stocks or bonds or other investment vehicles), so that the initial assets (called “corpus”) develop over time as a result of the interest received on the underlying funds. The body can also be added over time. Foundations are often used by large institutions, such as universities and hospitals, but can also play a role in the financial management and/or revenue strategy of a non-profit organization. The corpus of an endowment fund is generally not used to fund annual operating costs. Instead, the goal of most organizations with foundations is to allow the corpus to grow without a levy, so that the underlying corpus gains in value over time and that the interest earned is available each year for the stated purpose of the Foundation. (Of course, one of the aforementioned goals of a foundation might be to use interest to “contribute to the organization`s annual proceeds.” When a foundation is created, there are usually guidance documents – such as a trust instrument or other written documents on the intent of donors – or simply a corporate decision of the board of directors that define the Foundation and express the guidelines. Guidance documents can literally limit the use of foundation funds (called “restrictions”). After written approval from the signatory agencies, in agreement with the other IRT members, and any notification necessary to the Endowment Holder, in accordance with the endorsement agreement, the owner performs the approved revised administrative measures and tasks. In accordance with the endowment agreement, all endowment income (including income and interest) adjusted after the inflation endowment adjustment exceeds the expected long-term annual administrative expenses of bank property must be maintained by the foundation holder in the foundation fund and made available to the owner by the Endowment Holder to finance unexpected expenses and requirements for adaptive management.
