SOQS Endowment Fund

The SOQS Endowment Fund was established to support the future growth and activities of our nonprofit organization to ensure stability in meeting our financial goals, which, in turn provide stability in our bringing our mission to life for year’s to come.  Endowment funds are permanently set aside and invested, generating further earnings.  After significant growth in the fund, expenditures are made from the earnings, leaving the principal intact.

Your contribution will help grow the SOQS Endowment Fund.  Since the announcement, we’ve raised more than $9,000 to bring us within $12,538 of our goal.  Thank you to the many donors who contributed to the SOQS Endowment Fund.  

To ensure your gift benefits our organization’s short and long term financial sustainability goals SOQS established the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show Endowment Fund with the Oregon Community Foundation (OCF).  As an OCF partner, SOQS participates in OCF’s professional managed investment program, receives professional guidance and advice on complex gift transactions (such as real estate and stocks), and has access to experts to advise those who wish to make  charitable estate planned gifts to our Endowment Fund.

On July 8, 2015 in honor of Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show’s  40th  Anniversary, founder Jean Wells Keenan announced the creation of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show Endowment Fund to ensure that the SOQS show and programs continues long after most of us are long gone.  Jean announced that generous donors created a 40th Anniversary challenge: they would donate $25,000 to the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show Endowment Fund, if SOQS raises an additional $25,000 to grow the SOQS Endowment Fund to a total of $40,000 in its first year.  That challenge was met in the first 8 months of the campaign thanks to our many generous donors.
