Power of Investment Returns

& Prudent Spending Policy

Invested in 1996 with $100,000 in gifts made in honor of William and Ruth Gerberding, the endowment has provided a powerful impact— distributing approximately $140,000 in fellowship support to date, while growing to a market value nearly double its original value.
