The Living Legacy Endowment is made up of donations to The Living Desert that help to sustain the Zoo and Gardens for the future. Unlike most donations, which are for current operations, donations to the endowment fund are structured so that the principal amount is kept intact while the investment income is available for use by The Living Desert.
All gifts to The Living Desert are important, but endowment gifts ensure a permanent and reliable source of funding; this is especially beneficial in times of economic downturns or in the seasonality of our visitors here in the desert. A permanent endowment effectively eliminates the uncertainty inherent in financial planning for The Living Desert.
