The GRHS Endowment Fund

THE GRHS ENDOWMENT FUND was created to help ensure the long-term financial stability of the Germans from Russia Heritage Society.

MEMBERSHIP DUES keep our Society operating from day to day (including the Heritage Review, staff salaries, and building expenses). The GRHS Board of Directors serves at your pleasure, without remuneration. GRHS is fortunate to have a very faithful staff.

THE ENDOWMENT FUND was established at the 1987 GRHS Convention. The Charitable Gifting & Endowment Fund Committee is responsible for soliciting and collecting donations to the fund. Only earned income from investments is remitted to the Society.

It is the intention to establish a permanent fund and not allow any expenditure of the principal. However, the principal may be used if a majority of members at an annual meeting or any special membership meeting called for that purpose vote to do so.

THE PURPOSE OF THE ENDOWMENT FUND is to raise funds to ensure the long-term stability of the Society and to fund projects that are an important part of preserving the German-Russian ethnic heritage. Your gift can provide needed funds ...
