Endowed gifts are permanently invested to supply a steady, annual source of funds for a purpose specified by the donor. Common examples of endowed gifts include professorships, scholarships, and fellowships, and they are often named in honor of the donor or a loved one.
Because these gifts continue to generate income in perpetuity, they provide essential resources to ensure the University’s long-term strength and support future generations.
