Endowment

The Gift of Forever

Gifts to the Urban League’s endowment funds with the Madison Community Foundation (MCF) last a lifetime, and will ensure a permanent income stream for our mission. An endowment is a permanent investment that grows over time. Each year, a portion of each fund can be distributed to our cause. Rather than a one-time gift, an endowment continually generates resources that will be available forever.

Urban League has two endowment funds: our Workforce Innovation Fund and our Youth Endowment Fund.

Charitable Gift Annuity

A charitable gift annuity (CGA) is a simple agreement between you and Madison Community Foundation offering significant tax and financial benefits. In exchange for a gift of assets, typically cash or publicly traded stock or mutual fund, MCF pays a guaranteed lifetime income. You can create an annuity for up to two people, and payments can begin immediately or be deferred to a later time. The donor designates the remainder of the annuity to one (or both) of the Urban League Endowment Funds.
