Specific Donations: Stellafane is currently soliciting donations for the Endowment Fund to help weather unforeseen or catastrophic events, and for the General Fund which pays for ongoing expenses of maintaining the facilities. Below you will find areas to donate to one or both of these funds.

Endowment Fund

The Stellafane Endowment Fund seeks to ensure the future of Stellafane for future generations by raising funds and investing them appropriately so as to protect and grow principal while earning a reasonable rate of return. The principal will be untouched except in the case of a catastrophic need. In essence, it would also serve as an emergency fund in the event of a financial crisis that threatens the continued ownership, use or maintenance of the Stellafane properties.
