Endowment income provides critical long-term financial stability to support the students and programs that our University serves. An endowment can be established to support ongoing operating expenses or for designated purposes such as financial assistance to deserving students, support of academic programs or professorships, missions programs and ongoing support for a wide variety of other programs and activities. All endowed funds have one objective: to support initiatives not just for one year, or even one generation, but in perpetuity.
A donor may designate an endowed fund in his or her own name, as a tribute to a friend or loved one, or to honor a professor or mentor. An endowed fund may be established with cash, securities, real estate or through a bequest.
