I am very excited to announce at our semi-annual meeting, The Winyah Rivers Foundation Board voted to authorize The Fund for the Rivers. This endowment fund will help finance tomorrow's activities the way your annual giving helps fund our current work for the rivers. We are strongly committed to carry our work into the future and invite your legacy gifts. Please do consider remembering us in your wills.
Initially this fund will be in a separate savings account designated just for it. When we have accumulated a reasonable amount we anticipate investing in the stock market. The board has decided that the principal will never be touched. All memorial gifts will be placed in the fund and the investments will be placed in socially responsible investments. Other details and polices will be published but these three principals will guide the administration of the fund.
Please contact me if you have questions or wish to be among the pioneer givers to The Fund for the Rivers.
For the Rivers,
Ron Hartman, President
Winyah Rivers Foundation
