Corpus Ensures Strong, Consistent Funding
Since our inception in 1961, millions of dollars have been awarded to assist in floriculture research and educational programs. Contributions to the Endowment's corpus directly result in consistent, stable increases in grant funding. Earnings from the corpus provide annual funding dollars. As the corpus grows, dollars available for funding increase.
From 1961 to 1988, the corpus grew beyond $3 million. During that 27 year period, the Endowment awarded a little more than $2.2 million in grant funding. In the six years from 1989 to 1997, the corpus grew to approximately $9 million and grant funding for this short period totaled more than $5 million.
Today, the corpus has grown to approximately $12 million with approximately $1 million available for annual allocations.
Cumulative Giving Levels
Contributions are cumulative and provide a practical way of building individual and organizational participation. Recognition plaques are presented annually to those reaching each level beginning with the Guardian level.
