About the Endowment
Created by a donation of the estate of Thomas Griffin's mother, Helen, in memory of her son, the Thomas Griffin Endowment for the 42nd Royal Highlanders provides operating support to the programs of the 42nd Royal Highlanders.
Managed by the Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette, the Thomas Griffin Endowment is managed together with funds of 121 other Lafayette-area charitable and arts organizations, including the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette, the Bach Chorale Singers, Tippecanoe County Historical Association, Tippecanoe Arts Federation, Civic Theater, and the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra.
A community foundation is a tax-exempt public charity that enables people to establish charitable funds, generally in the form of named endowments. Funds are accounted for separately, commingled for investment purposes, and managed professionally. Grants are awarded from fund earnings to support local nonprofit organizations, in accordance with the donors' interests.

Why Support The Endowment?
The Thomas Griffin Endowment for the 42nd Royal Highlanders provides recurring operating support to the programs of the 42nd Royal Highlanders. To support the 42nd for the long-term, the principal of the Endowment remains invested and is left to grow, with proceeds only disbursed to provide stable, predictable, annual support to the programs of the 42nd Royal Highlanders.
The 42nd will receive an annual payout each year to help pay for items such as musical instruction, uniforms, instruments, performance expenses, or to cover expenses for the Scottish cultural programming sponsored by the organization.
Your tax-deductible contribution to the Thomas Griffin Endowment for the 42nd Royal Highlanders will ensure that Scottish music, history , and culture will continue to be presented and preserved in the Lafayette, Indiana area.
