Endowed Gifts

Endowment gifts are invested by the University and the income from the gift is directed toward a purpose selected by the donor. This type of gift is especially appreciated, as only the interest generated from the principal of an endowment is expended in accordance with the University’s spending policy while the endowment gift continues to grow in perpetuity to support the scholarship or program area of the donor’s intent. A minimum of $25,000 is needed to create a fully endowed fund; however, the endowment can be built over a period of time. Endowed gifts support such key areas as scholarships, professorships and institutional academic and programmatic initiatives.
