Endowed Funds Support the Future

Endowed funds are invested to provide income in perpetuity.

Each year a portion of the income generated from the principal is released to be used for the specific purpose for which the fund was established.

Typically, endowed funds provide money for student scholarships. Other areas of support may include student and faculty research, academic program development and other scholarly activities.

Often, an endowed fund is established to recognize and honor a person such as a mentor or a family member. If desired, an individual can fund an endowment over a period of up to five years.
