Endowment Fund

Gilroy Garlic Festival Endowment Fund

The Gilroy Garlic Festival Endowment Fund was established in partnership with the Silicon Valley Community Foundation in 2018. Building this Endowment Fund will enable the Gilroy Garlic Festival Association to continue its support of local schools, charities, and other non-profit organizations in perpetuity.

Gifts can be made by individuals, groups, organizations, or through a will or trust. Any money donated will become part of the endowment’s permanent capital base and cannot be withdrawn or reallocated.

Silicon Valley Community Foundation advisors will invest and manage the fund, providing an annual payout to the Gilroy Garlic Festival Association based on a percentage of the fund’s total returns. This annual payout (typically around 5% of the invested capital) will supplement revenue generated by the Festival and help ensure that volunteer payouts remain consistent year over year.

If you want to leave a legacy by ensuring the continued success of the Gilroy Garlic Festival and its long-term support of local non-profit groups, please make a gift to the Gilroy Garlic Festival Endowment Fund. For more details, speak to your personal investment advisor or contact Brian Bowe at 408.842.1625 or brian@gilroygarlicfestival.com.

Thank you for your support of the Gilroy Garlic Festival Endowment Fund!

The 2019 Gilroy Garlic Festival is presented by St. Louise Regional Hospital.
