December 2017 Your generous support of the Endowed Scholarship Program of the Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund has enabled the organization to increase the number of Scholars who receive financial support from The Fund. This year, we will award $2 million to 345 young people, a 25% increase in the number of students receiving financial awards in just three years. The 141 endowed scholarships account for 36% of that total, or approximately $730,000! This financial assistance is a critical factor in our Scholars’ ability to take full advantage of the educational opportunities at their respective colleges. For some, it is the reason they are able to attend at all. Those of you who have attended any of our events have heard our Scholars testify to how important these awards are to them and how much they appreciate them. The Endowed Reception, held annually in June, is an excellent opportunity to experience firsthand the impact that your support has. If you have not yet attended this or our other events, I encourage you to do so. As 2017 comes to a close, our total endowment is nearing the $16 million mark. During this calendar year, we added nine new endowed scholarships. This new support is vital because the need for additional scholarship aid is growing. Our ability to provide the critical support Ouimet Scholars need requires us to expand our financial resources. To this end, I ask you to please reach out to your friends and golfing colleagues who are in a position to endow a scholarship of their own. You know best the pride and sense of accomplishment that comes from endowing a scholarship and I encourage you to invite others to share in this achievement! In closing, I would like to express my profound gratitude to my predecessor, Dick Reilly, for his guidance and commitment to the Ouimet Fund and to the Scholars we support. His leadership enabled our endowment to become a true corner stone for our organization. Thank you, again, for your generous support and all that you do for the young men and women who are our future. Sincerely,

Duffy Brent Chair, Development Committee

The Ouimet Endowed Scholarship Program

The Ouimet Fund Endowed Scholarship Program has become our cornerstone for growth. Endowed scholarships are permanently restricted funds that are invested to insure the existence of the scholarship in perpetuity. The program offers the donor the ability to tailor their gift and the resulting named award to suit their own philanthropic goals. Since 1991, the number of endowed scholarships invested with The Fund has grown from 5 to 141 awards. A unique quality of the Ouimet Fund Endowed Scholarship Program is that it permanently links the donor, honoree or sponsoring organization with golf, Francis Ouimet, youth and education. Every year, we are thrilled to communicate with the donors and/or honorees to let them know about the student(s) that they are helping and what makes him or her a worthy recipient. We often hear of the satisfaction they feel knowing they’ve made a difference in the life of a young student. The recipients of the awards often send letters of gratitude to their benefactors letting them know how important their support has been.

Endowment Is Important To The Future Of The Fund

Endowed scholarships are important to the Ouimet Fund and our Scholars. The endowed awards broaden The Fund’s financial base and proceeds greatly add to our scholarships, lessening our dependence on annual fundraising and events and increasing the dollars available to support all of our Scholars.

Is A Ouimet Endowed Scholarship Right For You?

The 141 endowed awards established with the Ouimet Fund have been funded in a variety of ways. The common thread among them is that the contributions come from individuals, families or special groups who wish to honor a deep commitment and connection to young people, education, the game of golf and Francis Ouimet. 3


Frequently Asked Questions

1) Who should endow a scholarship? The ideal candidate is someone who has a deep affinity for golf, or has or had a parent or loved one who shares that deep affinity for golf, and who would like to be permanently associated with golf, Francis Ouimet and education. Family members, for instance, may together create an award in the name of their Mom or Dad. Other candidates include companies or clubs and organizations that are close to golf. Members of those organizations may collectively donate and may even approach vendors to contribute to a special cause. 2) How can I ensure that my philanthropic goals are realized? The Ouimet Fund’s Endowed Scholarship Program allows the donor to “personalize” a scholarship by determining qualifications that are important to them. Current Ouimet endowed scholarships include awards for Ouimet Scholars who are in a particular field of study, Scholars from a particular club or region of the state, a female Scholar, or an inner-city Scholar. Candidates meeting these restrictions will be given priority. Donors may create their award with very defined restrictions or in broader terms, or the donor can opt to allow The Fund to select a deserving recipient. 3) How can I make my contribution? Ouimet endowed scholarships can be funded in a variety of ways: • Cash Donations: These can be made with a one-time donation or split up over two to five years. • Gifts From Appreciated Stock: Donors may wish to take advantage of the tax savings by making a gift of appreciated stock that would then be sold by The Fund to establish the award. Consult your tax advisor for more information. • Memorial Donations: People frequently designate the Ouimet Fund for memorial donations when a loved one passes away. Occasionally, these donations have been large and people have “rolled” them into endowed scholarships by making additional contributions. • Memorial Tournaments: A memorial tournament can be organized by the donating group and the proceeds used to fund a permanently endowed scholarship. • From a Fundraising Effort: Several organizations have funded endowed awards by soliciting their members to donate toward the endowed scholarship. Each of the individual donors was able to deduct the donation. Eddie Lowery Planned Giving Program: The Fund is pleased to recognize, as members of The Eddie Lowery Society, those individuals who have made a future commitment to The Fund through an estate gift. Planned (or bequest) gifts naming the Ouimet Fund as beneficiary through a will, trust agreement, life insurance policy or other deferred gift such as a 401(k) provide a vital resource for our scholarship aid. We thank the following members of the Eddie Lowery Society, some of whom have created an endowed scholarship through their bequest: Fred Bailey Paul Boudreau Duffy Brent Robert P. and Theresa N. Donovan Richard J. Fogarty, Jr. Ted Highberger

Dorothy B. Holt Trust Bob Jordan and Bob Mix Gloria and William G. O’Brien John Quinn Carolyn S. Savage Fred Thorne

If you would like to learn how you can include the Ouimet Fund as part of your estate plan and join this very special group of supporters, please visit www.Ouimet.org/plannedgiving or contact us at 774.430.9090. 4) Can I gift money from my IRA and receive a charitable tax deduction? The IRA Charitable Rollover has been permanently extended, but we suggest you consult your tax advisor on its current application. The Rollover has allowed individuals age 70½ and older to make direct transfers totaling up to $100,000 per year to 501(c)(3) organizations, such as the Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund, without having to count the transfers as income for federal income tax purposes. The transfers do, however, count toward that person’s required minimum distribution for the year. Transfers must come from your IRAs directly to the Ouimet Fund. If you have retirement assets in a 401(k), 403(b) etc., you must first roll those funds into an IRA, and then you can direct the IRA provider to transfer the funds from the IRA directly to the Ouimet Fund. 5) What Will I Receive For My Contribution? Most importantly, you will receive the satisfaction that comes with realizing your goal of helping young people attain their college dreams. You will also receive annual information from The Fund detailing the student(s) who will be receiving your scholarship, as well as key financial performance data on your fund and the Ouimet Fund in general.. As a token of our gratitude, you will also receive a special “Francis Ouimet and Eddie Lowery” framed plaque which is presented to each sponsor or honoree often at one of our events. Awards are listed annually in this publication, in the Annual Impact Report, and are permanently engraved on a special recognition board at the Ouimet Fund offices at the William F. Connell Golf House. Please contact The Fund for more information at 774.430.9090. 4


Endowed Scholarship Donor Details

What: The Ouimet Fund offers the opportunity for people to permanently endow a Ouimet Fund Scholarship. The scholarship may be endowed in your name, the name of a loved one (living or dead), or the name of a company or organization. Scholarships may also be endowed anonymously or in the name of a third party. The Fund can also set up endowed scholarships and manage them for other organizations. Why the Ouimet Fund?: The Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund has been in existence for over 65 years, since 1949. It is one of the most respected small charities in New England and has awarded nearly $34 Million in scholarships to over 5,700 students, many of whom have gone on to outstanding careers in business and professional positions. The Ouimet Fund is considered “The Golf Charity of Massachusetts”TM and is supported by over 100 clubs, all of the golf organizations in the state as well as many individuals, companies and foundations. In the last five fiscal years alone, which will end on March 31, 2018, the Ouimet Fund will have awarded over $8.6 Million in Scholarships.

DONATION AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Donation Level: The minimum donation required to establish an endowed scholarship is $50,000. Frequently, larger donations are made at the start or ongoing donations are made to increase the impact of the award. Pledging Over Time: A donor may agree to make the donation over a period of two to five years, if necessary. Tax-deductibility: The donation to fund a scholarship and any additional contributions to it, are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. 501 (c) (3) Tax-Exempt Organization: The Ouimet Fund has been a non-profit, tax-exempt organization in good standing for 68 years. Tax ID #04-2234126. Portfolio Management: The Fund’s endowed scholarship portfolio is managed by Goldman Sachs and has performed well historically. Audit Report/Yearly Financial Report: The Ouimet Fund has an independent audit each year by a firm that specializes in non-profit organizations and private schools. From that audit, The Fund has information on each endowed scholarship, including growth and disbursements which is communicated to the donor. Amount of Annual Scholarship: The annual amount of the endowed award is generally 5% of the total of the endowment. The endowed award is made as part of, and in addition to, the general Ouimet Scholarship awarded. A $50,000 endowment, for instance, will cover about half of a Ouimet award, that could range from $4,000 to $6,000. Endowments of greater size ($100,000) can be created to provide more than one scholarship per year. Management Fee: The Ouimet Fund draws 1% of the principal each year from each endowed fund and transfers that amount to the annual operating budget. This helps to offset the increasing costs associated with operating and managing the endowed scholarship program. Contract: Upon establishment of a new endowed scholarship, the Ouimet Fund requires a contract that is a standard agreement used by schools and colleges. The contract protects the donor, the student recipient and the Ouimet Fund. The contract stipulates any special restrictions requested by the donor and agreed upon by the Ouimet Fund. “Enduring Value” of the Endowed Scholarship: The permanently endowed scholarship gives a donor a great return for their investment. As the award is made yearly, there is an annual recognition of the donor and/or honoree.

SCHOLARSHIP MANAGEMENT AND SELECTION

Selection of Recipients: The recipients of the endowed scholarship are current Ouimet Scholars. Generally, they are Scholars who have been in the Ouimet program for a couple of years and have a “track record” of accomplishment. Notification of Recipients: The Ouimet Fund’s staff reviews all Scholars annually. The Executive Director will inform the donors of the choices for each award. Notification of Winners: The Ouimet Fund will notify the individual winners of each award, and give them an overview of who established the award, including some information on the honoree. Ouimet Eligibility: Applicants must have completed at least two years “service to golf” as caddies or in pro shop or course superintendent operations at a Massachusetts golf course. The awards are “need-based” and assist with tuition at accredited undergraduate institutions. Management of Scholarship: The Ouimet Fund’s professional staff manages the scholarships. What if there is no Scholar meeting the specified qualifications?: The Ouimet Fund seeks to have each endowed scholarship help a student with need and will select a Scholar who may not meet the narrow restrictions. Waiting Period: If an award is scheduled to be paid over multiple years, until the full financial obligation has been met, a token award will be made from Ouimet Scholarship contingency funds. “Looks Great on a Resume”: The Ouimet endowed awards are considered highly prestigious and past winners list them on resumes. Can the Award be made through a school and put in the investment portfolio of the school?: No. Announcement/Promotion of Awards: The Ouimet Fund lists each award annually in its Annual Report and gives further description in this publication. A photo of the honoree is often included and each year the photo of the recipient is published in this report. If possible, the Ouimet Fund may have a presentation of the award at a key Ouimet event the year it is established. The Ouimet Fund will also present a plaque to the donor, if applicable. Making use of its multitude of social media channels, The Fund publicizes and recognizes winners through such endeavors as “EndoWEDNESDAYS”, a way of highlighting one award and its recipient on our website. 5
