New Software System for Endowment Accounts

July 12, 2021

Beginning in FY 2022, a new software system will be implemented to track the contribution value, market value and annual payout for more than 4,000 individual endowment accounts across campus invested in the Chapel Hill Foundation Investment Fund (CHIF).

June 9, 2020

The purpose of this memorandum is to provide campus information on the June 2020 payout distribution to University and UNC-Chapel Hill Foundation Inc. endowments.  The approved distribution rate each year is targeted to be approximately 5 percent of market value, but the actual distribution could be lower if the endowment is underwater.   The term “underwater endowment” is used to mean one in which the endowment’s total market value is less than its historic book value or principal – i.e. the actual dollars contributed to the fund.
