Ensuring Long-Term Support For Heifer’s Mission
The mission of Heifer Foundation is to manage and grow an endowment to provide long-term support for our sister organization, Heifer International. Heifer Foundation's endowment is built through charitable gifts, such as gifts of cash, property and stock, as well as funds from bequests, trusts and annuities. These gifts are invested, and the investment earnings provide annual support for Heifer for many years into the future. By investing the charitable gift prudently, the initial donation has a greater impact over a longer period of time. Each year, a portion of the endowment is made available to Heifer International for use in its mission to end hunger and poverty. This sustainable cycle of support provides lasting resources for Heifer's sustainable solution to hunger and poverty.
How to Donate
Due to the nature of endowment gifts, Heifer Foundation only accepts gifts of $1,000 or more. You can make a gift to Heifer Foundation's endowment by mailing a check to:
PO Box 727
Little Rock, AR 72203
Be sure to include your name and address, so we can send you a thank you note and receipt for your donation.
Named Memorial Endowment
One meaningful way to create an ongoing legacy is by establishing a Named Memorial Endowment. Many families, businesses and institutions have chosen to establish endowments to honor traditions, mark achievements, or in appreciation of friends, relatives, colleagues or community leaders. The endowment serves not only as a perennial source of income to Heifer, but also as a continuing reminder of the values of the individual(s) or institution it honors.
