FLOW has taken a step to protect its long-term financial security by setting up a $25,000 endowment fund with Columbus Foundation.
FLOW’s income and expenses have fluctuated over the past few years, but success with grants and corporate donations and a continued determination to cut expenses helped to build a nest egg to invest in Columbus Foundation Green Funds. When needed, FLOW can draw on this investment. It is hoped that the endowment may encourage interest from larger philanthropic groups. The Fund will let FLOW earn a higher return than typical bank accounts and help achieve the mission of a clean and safe Olentangy River for all to enjoy.
