    opportunities is available from the Western Administrative Office or any Foundation Board of Trustee.

    DESIGNATION OF CONTRIBUTION

    The Board of Trustees of the Western Educational Foundation herewith establishes the following
    contribution funds:

    General Operating Fund: Contributions intended to meet the current administrative costs of the Foundation.
    Examples of the General Operating Fund needs may include printing of brochures, pamphlets, news articles,
    general consultant fees, and other miscellaneous expenses not readily allowable for specific purposes.

    Special Purpose Fund: Contributions intended to provide a specific purpose, program, or article. Special
    Purpose fund contributions may be expended in part or total and will be accounted for by general purpose,
    program or article. Investment interest generated will be allocated on the basis of ending available balances
    within the fund. Following a period of one year of special purpose activity, unallocated balances may be
    allocated within the Fund.


    Endowment Fund: Contributions intended to provide a perpetual source of funding from a generated
    investment interest. Endowment principal amounts shall not be redistributed to another fund unless approved
    by a two-thirds (2/3) voting majority of the Board of Trustees.

    CONFIDENTIALITY AND EXPENSES

    At the request of the donor, the confidentiality of any gift, donation or contribution will be respected.
    Professional expenses are to be the responsibility of the donor, whenever possible. However, the Board of
    Trustees will endeavor to underwrite such expenses in order to obtain a significant gift or bequest.
