Endowment Fund Support

The Endowment and the Eugene B. Casey Foundation Challenge Grant
$1,000,000 Goal

The Board of Directors of the Barns of Rose Hill in 2014 established an endowment to provide a stable financial foundation upon which to perform the Barns’ mission…

“… to enrich lives through programs in the performing, visual, and literary arts.”

The endowment gives grant makers and donors confidence in our stability as a thriving organization.

The beginnings of the Barns’ endowment were modest. But the Board’s goal is to build the endowment to become a significant bulwark for financial stability.

To that end, on March 22, 2017 the Board of Directors were thrilled to publicly announce that the Eugene B. Casey Foundation has made a $500,000 Challenge Grant to the Barns of Rose Hill endowment. The Foundation, long a supporter of the local community, has committed to serve as a leader in establishing a significant endowment for the Barns of Rose Hill.

The Foundation Challenge Grant will match, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000 of endowment gifts through August 31 of each year, over the course of five years. The final year of the Challenge Grant will end on August 31, 2021. The goal is an endowment in excess of $1,000,000 at that time.

The Barns of Rose Hill continues to depend upon annual giving, donations, and grants to support and make possible our on-going programs. The Barns continues to encourage and to solicit individuals, foundations, and companies for this annual support. These donations for on-going programs are the life blood of the Barns; they allow the doors to stay open.

In harmony with annual giving and donations, gifts to the endowment provide an opportunity to establish long term financial stability for the Barns, an opportunity to have a “leg-up” as the Barns move ahead. And the Eugene B. Casey Foundation Challenge Grant allows donors to leverage their gifts, to double “the bang for their buck”.

The Challenge Grant is the Foundation’s way of saying “We believe in you and we believe in what you do.” If you believe in the power of arts and education and community to change our world, we hope you consider joining The Eugene B. Casey Foundation in supporting the Barns of Rose Hill as we continue our mission into a bright future.

We need your help to receive the greatest benefit from this generous Challenge Grant. Please make a five-year pledge or donate now.
