What is it?

Why this type of funding?

An endowment is a dedicated fund established through charitable contributions that provides ongoing financial support for our parks and recreation programs, ensuring their long-term sustainability and continued availability to the community.

By creating an endowment fund, we hope to build a support system for the parks and recreation needs of Fircrest residents for generations to come.

Will it grow?

With the help of our fiscal partner, the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation,

our investments will grow over time.
This allows the foundation the opportunity to award grants every year that supports Fircrest Parks & Recreation.


Why an Endowment is important #1

Building an endowment helps support Fircrest parks and recreational

programming forever.

How an Endowment fund works? 


A gift or donation is made and forms the principal.


The principal is protected, invested and grows over time.


A portion of the fund's value is distributed annually forever.
