Historic Dollar Value
The fair market value of each gift made to an endowment fund on the date that the gift is made plus the fair market value of each income accumulation reinvested to the endowment fund on the date that the reinvestment occurs.

Example:
A donor makes a cash gift of $25,000 to the John Doe Endowment Fund on May 2, 2005. If no other gifts have been made to the endowment, then the historic dollar value of the endowment on May 2, 2005 is $25,000 (the fair market value of the gift on the date the gift was made). The donor subsequently makes a second gift of 1,000 shares of Widget, Inc. stock to the endowment on May 15, 2005. The stock was valued at $25 per share (for a total fair market value of $25,000 for the 1,000 shares given) on the date of the gift. The historic dollar value of the endowment on May 15, 2005 was $50,000 ($25,000 plus $25,000). If no other gifts are made to the endowment, and if no fund distributions are reinvested, the historic dollar value of the fund will remain $50,000.
