In 1993, the Board of Trustees of The Social &Learning Institute partnered with Unity Foundation of La Porte County to establish a permanent endowment fund. This fund, managed by Unity Foundation, will provide income to support the Institute... FOREVER. Each year, the Foundation distributes a portion of the fund's generated income to the Institute for operational or other programming needs. The larger the funds permanent principal balance, the larger the annual distribution.
