Fenner Conservancy has an endowment fund at the Capital Region Community Foundation. The Nature Center uses multiple revenue sources to fund its daily work in fulfillment of its mission. However, we must also look to the many tomorrows that lay before us. Donations to this endowment are managed by the Capital Region Community Foundation, and will provide a percentage of the average value to the Nature Center annually. This revenue not only supports Fenner's daily efforts for the environment and education, but also guarantees that this income source will be available each year.
Generally, bequests, memorial donations, and other designated gifts will be placed in the endowment. As the principal grows, so too does the interest generated and paid to Fenner Nature Center. Donations remain a living legacy, and will ensure that the Nature Center will exist in perpetuity for hundreds of thousands of people to enjoy.
