Rose Community Foundation’s Nonprofit Endowment Cohort program is part of a complete suite of support and training services that are offered to organizations that house an endowment fund at the Foundation and are ready to promote a culture of endowment giving through current or future gifts. Through two decades of helping organizations build endowment funds, we have seen the transformational impact of legacy gifts and the financial stability that nonprofits experience from annual endowment distributions.

The cohort program is designed to give professionals and volunteer leaders of your organization training and incentives to integrate endowment building and legacy giving into your development work. It is our goal that by the end of the program, your organization will have launched an endowment fund and created a plan that includes the solicitation, marketing and stewardship of endowment and legacy gifts.
