Endowment Gifts

Gifts to create or enhance an endowed fund sustain the College and ensure its vitality for generations to come. Each year, a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the designated purpose, and any earnings in excess of this distribution are reinvested to build the fund’s market value. An endowment fund can grow and provide support for its designated purpose in perpetuity.

Endowment assets are invested, and gifts can be directed by the donor to support student scholarships, faculty development, research, or programs. In addition to providing a steadfast source of funding for the College, endowed funds are named by the donor and offer a significant and lasting legacy.

Endowed funds can be created through a single gift, multi-year, or planned gift.
