Office of Development

An endowment provides a perpetual flow of scholarship or operational funding for a specific program.  When you use a charitable gift to establish an endowment, the gift is invested with two goals in mind:

  1. To make the principle grow faster than inflation
  2. To provide spendable income for whatever specific purpose you have designated.

The principle is not touched and any earnings over a certain amount are channeled back into the fund to keep it healthy and growing. Well-managed endowments should generate income indefinitely; therefore, they are uniquely valuable to the university.

Minimum Amount for an Endowment

Endowments begin at $25,000.00

Pledge Your Gift

Gifts of this size usually come in the form of a pledge that may be paid over several years.
