"Endowing" the Study Center's future . . .
what it is, how to give.

An "endowment" is the gathering together of gifts or other monies and conservatively investing their total amount in fully reliable financial securities. Each year after they are initially invested there is a financial return to the investor based on the investments' earnings.

Endowment funds given to the Pitcairn Islands Study Center will be invested by the very successful Investment Committee of Pacific Union College (on whose campus the Study Center is housed). The dollars earned by this investment will annually provide for the operational expenses of the Study Center, and will be used only for that purpose.

The endowment amount being sought by the Study Center is $40,000.00. From that invested amount, a modest, annual return for the Study Center's operational expenses is expected to be about $2,400.00, approximately the amount of the Center's current annual operational expenses.

You are invited to make a gift of an amount that best fits your circumstances to this endowment fund. There are several ways you can do this:

Via PayPal.com

Whether you are a PayPal member or not, through this secure site you can name the amount of your gift, and order that it be sent to "PISC@pitcairnstudycenter.org." In return, you will receive from Pacific Union College and the Study Center a letter of acknowledgment and thanks, and a receipt noting the amount given, and that your gift is tax deductible should you care to use it for that purpose.

Via Credit Card

You may send your gift by using VISA, MasterCard or Discover card to hford@puc.edu, giving the amount of your gift, and the particulars of your card: card type, name on the card, card number, expiration date, the three-digit security code on the back of the card, and your mailing address. In return, you will receive from Pacific Union College and the Study Center a letter of acknowledgment and thanks, and a receipt noting the amount given, and that your gift is tax deductible should you care to use it for that purpose.

Via Postal Services

You may send your endowment in cash, or by a check made to "Pitcairn Islands Study Center" to "1 Angwin Avenue, Angwin, CA 94508 USA." In return, you will receive from Pacific Union College and the Study Center a letter of acknowledgment and thanks, and a receipt noting the amount given, and that your gift is tax deductible should you care to use it for that purpose.

From the mouth of Christian's Cave, the Pitcairn village of Adamstown is seen in the foreground looking toward the endless horizon of the South Pacific Ocean with the lofty peak of Ship's Landing Point rising in the distance.
