The HGO Endowment is designed to provide perpetual, predictable financial support, ensuring that the company can achieve excellence in all we do. Currently, the HGO Endowment is valued at $40 million, roughly double the company’s annual operating expenses. Experts recommend that an organization’s endowment be three times their annual operating budget in order to ensure the long-term viability of company’s work.
