The Martha Walker Endowment was established in 1999 to support Totem Pole’s programs and activities in Franklin County.
An endowment fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding. Endowment assets are invested. Each year, a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose, and any earnings in excess of this distribution are used to build the fund’s market value. In this way, an endowment fund can grow and provide support for its designated purpose in perpetuity. When you give to an endowment fund, you create a permanent legacy of support for Totem Pole; because an endowment gift will be invested permanently, it can serve as a permanent tribute to the donor and extend the donor’s values for future generations.
Your gift helps to preserve Totem Pole Playhouse, and ensure quality productions will be presented on the Totem Pole stage.
