Economic uncertainty and bleak governmental commitment to adults with developmental disabilities are threats to many families and organizations that support them.
The endowment will fund programs and services that are essential to the operation of Emmaus. The endowment assures lasting support for the residents of the Emmaus Community and an opportunity for individuals, corporations and foundations to be partners in our mission.
The Emmaus Community will raise $1,000,000 to establish its first endowment fund. Endowment dollars are critical because they provide income in perpetuity to sustain a high quality of care for persons with developmental disabilities. A $1,000,000 endowment would generate approximately $50,000 in interest that would provide guaranteed annual unrestricted income for Emmaus.
It is our intention to grow the fund even larger over time.
