Endowment Giving

Endowment Giving

Because we rely on individual donors and foundations for the vast majority of our annual income, a financially sound future is as important as the present. Donor gifts can be designated for immediate use or can be placed into an “endowment fund” for investment and future use.

Endowments gifts are an investment in the future of an organization. The donor’s original gift is invested, remains there and grows in perpetuity, and provides valuable funds that support important work in the future. And endowment gift to Save The Bay is an investment in the future of Narragansett Bay and in Save The Bay’s advocacy, restoration, education and stewardship work.

To learn more about our endowment funds or to make an endowment gift, contact Joan Abrams at 401-272-3540, x126.

Giving to an endowment is a thoughtful decision. When an organization has an endowment, that says the organization has passionate donors who believe the mission is so important that it will be needed well into the future.

*Please note:  Be sure to access the Johnson & Wales University Harborside Campus through the main entrance on Harborside Blvd. Your GPS may suggest taking Ernest Street to JWU’s Shipyard Street entrance, but that route requires a key card for entry.  

From Route I-95 North or South, take Exit 18 (Thurbers Avenue). Head downhill on Thurbers Avenue to US Route 1A (Allens Avenue). Turn right onto Allens Ave. Continue southbound on Allens Ave. into Cranston, where Allens Ave. becomes Narragansett Blvd. Turn left onto Harborside Blvd. at the traffic light by the Shell gas station. Follow Harborside Blvd. through the Johnson & Wales Harborside Campus. At the end of Harborside Blvd., turn right onto Save The Bay Drive. Save The Bay Drive becomes a circular, one-way roadway as you approach the Bay Center. Parking is available in four guest lots after you pass the main building. Enter the building through the main entrance.
