Arizona Endowment Building Institute

Arizona Endowment Building Institute
The Arizona Endowment Building Institute was created in 2005 to give Arizona nonprofit organizations the tools and education they need to develop and implement endowment building programs.

With financial stability, organizations can be more effective

The Arizona Endowment Building Institute's structured curriculum provides each participating organization with a team of mentors to train Board members, assist with developing policies, and implement a specific plan of action. In addition, ACF offers ongoing support to AEBI alumni.

AEBI is ACF’s Advanced Track for nonprofits with serious interest, capacity and resources to build an organizational endowment. Beginner and intermediate tracks offer an introduction to endowment building and assist participating nonprofits in preparing for future application to AEBI.

Is your organization ready to begin?

Is your organization serious about building an organizational endowment and developing a planned giving program? Find out more about how the Arizona Endowment Building Institute can guide your nonprofit organization to the next level during an informational session led by planned giving experts.

Before a nonprofit can participate in an AEBI training program, at least one representative of the organization must attend an informational session. Since the content for each of the sessions we have scheduled for this spring is the same, you can register for the date that best fits your schedule.

Our leaders, staff and trustees are better prepared to promote and manage endowment.  We are privileged to have been selected and grateful to the staff and funders who had the vision to execute this program. The impact of this process will continue for years.
