The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee


The Elephant Sanctuary must make every effort to raise a minimum of $185,000 as a restricted donation to be set aside, in perpetuity, as an endowment for each rescued elephant. We will invest the principal, and the income will be used to provide daily feed and medical care for that individual elephant. As with any true endowment, only the income can be spent, with the principal being held in trust and invested to generate the necessary income to support the beneficiary of the endowment.

At this time, an endowment of $185,000 will generate a sufficient yearly income stream to provide for one elephant adequately. We will increase the principal of each endowment periodically to ensure that the required income keeps up with the rate of inflation. When an endowed elephant passes away, the endowment stays intact to guarantee permanent residency for another elephant.
