RE:
Endowment pool share payout (ESP) for Fiscal Year 2015
This letter is intended to provide budget planning guidance to the University community for
fiscal year 2015. This letter revises the version dated February 4, 2014 to reflect a change in the
fund raising fee.
The Endowment A Pool net spendable payout per share for fiscal year 2015, for all University and
Foundation endowments that are invested in the endowment pool, will be $3.29, a 14% decrease
from the current fiscal year net spendable payout of $3.83 per share. The decreased payout is
primarily the result of the reduction in the spending policy rate from 4.75% to 4.50% and the
exclusion of certain strategic assets (NDCL’s and real estate) owned by the endowment from the ESP
calculation. These changes were approved by the Board of Trustees on April 23, 2013.

All endowments invested in the endowment pool should budget revenue in their expendable
endowment fund at a gross budgeted payout per share amount of $4.57. Individual endowment
funds that pay the fund raising fee should budget $1.28 per share as a transfer for fund raising fee
in their expendable endowment fund. Individual endowment funds that are ineligible to be
charged the fee should budget $1.28 per share as a transfer to endowment principal in their
expendable endowment fund.
