Endowments

Endowments

Our first endowment was established at the Baptist Foundation in 2013.  In 2014, we committed to our first Mayo Clinic Jacksonville endowment.  We have continued to invest some of our event proceeds into these ongoing, perpetual funds. The current asset value exceeds $850,000.00.

For more information or questions about endowments, please complete this form and we will be in touch. Thank you!
