Invent Now Endowment: The Fund for the Future
The Invent Now endowment, The Fund for the Future, helps to expand our national programs and ensure that our noble mission continues well into the future.
The endowment allows you to make a gift to support the area where you have the greatest interest or our area of greatest need.
Unrestricted endowment funds provide the board and staff of Invent Now with the greatest flexibility. Unrestricted funds will be used to stimulate creativity in the minds of children and young adults and recognize inventors who have done so much for our future.
Donors may make gifts that are restricted to one or more specific purposes. While Invent Now will work with you to structure a fund that reflects your specific interests, our established endowment funds are:
- Children's Education Fund
Providing programmatic outreach and scholarships to children K-12; including the Camp Invention summer program and the Club Invention afterschool program.
- Collegiate Fund
Engaging undergraduate and graduate college students through programs like the Collegiate Inventors Competition.
- Inductee Fund
Supporting the National Inventors Hall of Fame's annual selection process, Induction Ceremony, and Inductee outreach programs.
Invent Now has established an Endowment Committee comprised of Inductees and members of the Board of Directors. Each member is happy to share with you why the success of this organization is vital for the future of the nation.
Endowment gifts of $100,000 and greater, including deferred gifts, will provide you with membership to the Legacy Society.
All Legacy Society members will receive:
- Invitations to all major events conducted by Invent Now
- Networking with Inductees and Friends of Invent Now
- Special Legacy Society recognition in the Invent Now quarterly e-newsletter
- Legacy Society Web recognition
- Legacy Society recognition in Invent Now's annual report and publications

Naming opportunities are available for all Legacy gifts of $500,000 and greater.
