Formed in 1988, the Houston Junior Forum Endowment Fund, Inc. was established to receive, invest, and manage contributions given to the corporation to specifically provide financial support to assist the Houston Junior Forum, Inc. in fulfilling its charitable purposes in the community. The Endowment Board is composed of seven members (Trustees) appointed each year for a three-year term. The HJF President and the HJF Treasurer serve as ex-officio members for one year. The seven members are appointed by the Executive Committee.
With generous support from HJF members and the community, the Endowment Fund is approaching 1.4 million dollars in its investment portfolio. Each calendar year, the Endowment Board may distribute an amount of the corporation’s net income. Since 1992, the Endowment Fund has provided over half a million dollars in grants to the Houston Junior Forum, Inc. in support of its charitable purposes.
Contributions are accepted throughout the year. Special donations may be made in honor of, or in memory, of a friend or loved one.
