Invest in the future of the Fayetteville Animal Protection Society
We at the Fayetteville Animal Protection Society are mindful of our longterm financial health and stability. One step taken to secure our organization financially with the expectation that our services will be needed for a long time to come is through our endowment at the Cumberland Community Foundation. Gifts to our endownment helps ensure that FAPS will have the resources to help animals in our community for years to come.
An endowment is a fund created to provide a non-profit organization with financial support in perpetuity. You can leave your legacy by leaving a gift to an existing endowment or by creating a new endowment to focus on a specific program, achieve a desired goal, or help with the greatest needs of an organization. The core of the investments are left intact and any interest earned is used to provide funds for the specified purpose. This means each year a percentage of the endowment is distributed to provide much-needed support for our programs, outreach, and life-saving mission. When a nonprofit creates an endowment, it symbolizes the organization’s commitment to a long and thriving future.
