A brief description of the companies, funds, and/or institutions referenced above:
Our "value of holdings in sustainable industries" is a conservative estimate--our endowment has risen significantly since 2010 but we were unable to find an updated number for our "value of holdings in sustainable industries," so have maintained our 2010. We believe the number is higher than reported.
