A large part of the College’s financial strategy depends upon preserving and enhancing its endowment.
Endowment refers to assets that are invested in perpetuity, unlike expendable funds which are typically used for immediate needs. Endowments are fundamental to the financial stability of colleges and universities, large and small. Endowment funds provide a steady predictable source of income over time, on which the College can make commitments and build its programmes. In addition to providing for the future, it also helps give Green Templeton the ability to respond to opportunities should they arise.
The College aims to secure a minimum of £10 million in cash and pledges over the next five years, which will allow it to continue to operate at or above its current level.
