An Endowment Fund was initiated by the St. Marks Refuge Association in 2012 to ensure future support of Refuge programs and projects. The principal amount in this Fund, built by donations from Refuge friends, will never be touched. Once the Fund has grown to an appropriate size, its annual earnings will be used to support Refuge activities and programs. Thus, your support of the Endowment Fund now will ensure that the Refuge we all love is supported forever.
Our Endowment Fund is professionally managed by the Community Foundation of North Florida, an organization that provides this service for many area non-profits. The Foundation's primary goals are to serve as a vehicle for charitable giving, and to ensure the endowment funds of member organizations remain strong over time. The Community Foundation maintains a detailed profile of the St. Marks Refuge
