    Even among those with years of higher education experience, endowments and how they work can be challenging to describe. Experts will explain the legal and governing structure of endowment funds and how they are managed to provide colleges, universities, and other nonprofit organizations with a steady and reliable source of funding over the long term. This session explores the basic structure of endowments and covers how they are managed to support current operations without shortchanging the future.
