Life brings precious few chances to make a real difference for tomorrow, and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation's endowment is one of them. It will provide a source of perpetual funding for conservation successes such as permanent land protection and wildlife habitat stewardship. Earnings from the endowment will be your annual and perpetual gift to wild places.
The principal from all gifts to the endowment is permanently invested. A minimum of 5 percent of the corpus will be used for mission accomplishment while the balance of the earnings will be reinvested. This will ensure the endowment continually grows. For example, a $50,000 gift to the endowment will produce at least $2,500 annually, and perpetually, for elk, other wildlife and their habitat. Any additional earnings will be reinvested in the endowment. Eventually, the corpus will grow to levels that will ensure the RMEF never has to walk away from good habitat projects because of a lack of immediate funding.
Give to the RMEF’s endowment, and you will be making a gift that keeps on giving, and one that builds a conservation legacy for the things we cherish most and want to share with our children.
