Nonprofit Endowment Calculator

See how your gift grows!

The HICF advocates endowment-building because this source of permanent capital helps your nonprofit organization plan for a stable and secure future. Endowment funds provide your nonprofit organization with a reliable, ongoing source of financial support. Each year, a distribution is available for your nonprofit organization to meet your ever-changing needs, empowering your nonprofit organization for opportunities like enhancements of facilities and equipment, long-term planning, responding to unmet needs, or meeting an unexpected shortfall in normal operating support. Over time, with gains in market performance and additions to your fund, your distribution will grow as well.

Enter your nonprofit organization's beginning fund balance and a sample time period to see how an endowed fund will ensure the long-term financial stability of your organization.
