Endow a Gift

Endowments provide a perpetual income stream that enable the Foundation to support certain programs each year.

Endowed scholarships

Contributions to an endowed scholarship fund become investments whose earned income serves as a source on which AORN Foundation can draw. A portion of the invested income is given to the scholarship recipient and the remainder is reinvested in the original principal. An endowed scholarship can be established with a minimum gift of $25,000.
