ATLA Endowment Fund

The purpose of the Endowment Fund is to secure the future of ATLA as a membership association. 

  • The ATLA Endowment Committee informs the membership of the purpose of the Endowment Fund, cultivates donor relationships, and solicits major gifts.  
  • The ATLA Endowment Fund is able to receive cash gifts, but also gifts of land, stock, life insurance policies, and other financial instruments. 
  • All contributions are 100% tax deductible for U.S. taxpayers. 
  • Contributions are invested in an investment portfolio where the principal remains untouched.  A percentage of the interest earned may be spent on core association priorities, however, at the current time ATLA is focused on the growth of the Fund.

The ATLA Endowment Fund received its first major gift in 1993 when Mrs. Jean Kelly Morris gave stock shares valued at $11,600 in memory of her late husband, Dr. Raymond P. Morris.  This lead gift, in conjunction with charitable contributions of many individual members and friends, matching gift contributions by ATLA and sound investment strategies, caused the ATLA Endowment Fund to increase in value to more than $300,000 by early 2013.
