  • Endowment Management. Prudent management of its $180 million endowment, which earned 16.4% in FY 2014, allows New Jersey Health Foundation to support health-related research and education programs in New Jersey through a combination of annual distributions designated by endowment donors and distributions of its own Board-designated funds.
