Total Contributions to the WWU Foundation by Fiscal Year
Total Endowment Assets under Management
Total Endowment Assets Under Management includes assets owned directly by the Foundation, as well as endowed assets managed by the Foundation on behalf of the University. The endowment experienced significant volatility in both the stock and bond markets during the final six months of the year, resulting in the reduction of total assets compared to the prior year.
Endowment Fund Returns
Endowment fund returns for fiscal year 2022 reflect the significant volatility experienced in both the stock and bonds markets. Annual distributions are calculated based on a formula using the prior years’ distribution and the three-year average of ending fund balances, thus reducing the impact of market fluctuations in any one year.
