Friends of The Oberlin Review Endowment Fund
in 2001 by current and former members of The Oberlin Review Staff,
this fund is created to support the operating budget of The Oberlin
Review. At such time as the balance in this fund reaches $25,000,
this fund shall become a permanently endowed fund. The income from
this fund, which shall be expended at the Oberlin College Board-approved
payout rate, is to be used to provide general operating support
for The Oberlin Review on an annual basis. If the fund does not
reach $25,000 by August 31, 2002, this fund shall become a current-use
fund to support The Oberlin Review during fiscal year 2002-03.
