Each non-endowed fund is assessed $100 each September in addition to the standard asset-based fee for its fund type (above).
No administrative fees are assessed until the fund balance reaches the minimum endowment level of $10,000 ($15,000 minimum for scholarship endowment).
These funds, which are designed to remain in existence for a short period of time, are assessed a 2.5% administrative fee on all pledges and contributions received. All contributions will be deposited into an interest-bearing account and the interest earned will be credited to the fund.
