The Drawing Studio Establishes Endowment Fund

The Drawing Studio (TDS) is pleased to announce it has established an organization endowment fund with the Jewish Community Foundation of Southern Arizona (JCFSA).

The Drawing Studio Endowment is a self-sustaining source of funding that will support TDS’s mission, programs, and areas of greatest need. The fund will help ensure the future of TDS for generations to come.

“Our endowment fund helps ensure that we can bring art education, exhibits, outreach, and more to the entire community,” said TDS Executive Director Stephanie Balzer. “We chose to partner with the Jewish Community Foundation of Southern Arizona because of their investment expertise and community leadership.”

Establishing an agency endowment fund is a testament to an organization’s plan for a sustainable future. Agency funds provide stable, predictable sources of income. The Drawing Studio’s endowment fund will receive outstanding financial and investment management through the JCFSA. As well, the JCFSA’s legacy experts will provide philanthropic counsel to donors seeking to support TDS.

“We are thrilled to work with The Drawing Studio and its donors,” said JCFSA Chief Executive Officer Tracy Salkowitz. “Art – and providing for opportunities to create art – matter to so many people in our community. We look forward to ensuring that TDS’s mission and vision lives on from one generation to the next.”
