On the mend: university endowment funds rebounding
The endowment funds of Canadian universities are on the rise, with the rebound in the market being partly responsible. (Others factors affecting a fund’s balance sheet are: withdrawals to cover a university’s expenses, additions from contributors, and various management and investment fees.)
There are differences among institutions but, overall, the level of operating funding flowing from endowment funds has returned to pre-recession levels.
