The purpose of this paper is to determine the mechanism of effectiveness of spending assets of endowment funds on the basis of mathematical models. Design/methodology/approach: The paper offers a mechanism of determination of effectiveness of spending of endowment funds. Findings: Effectiveness of an endowment fund's effectiveness depends on the results of fund-raising activities, supporting relations with donators, and financing of targeted programs and directions of activities.
