Early supporters of the Nature Center had the foresight to create the Shaker Lakes Regional Nature Center Endowment Foundation to establish consistent funding and long-term security for the Nature Center. Donations to the Endowment Foundation are strategically invested by its Board, which allocates annually a percentage of the revenue from those investments to the Nature Center for daily operations, guaranteeing a source of income each year. Generally, bequests, memorial donations, and other designated gifts are placed in the Endowment Fund. Donations to the Endowment Foundation remain a living legacy, ensuring that the Nature Center will exist into perpetuity.
