Establish an Endowment

Endowed funds are a critical piece of the support that we provide to students. Gifts to these funds are added to the endowment, which is invested but never spent. Instead, the fund continues to grow and provides investment income that can be disbursed for the designated purpose of the fund.

Establish an Endowment

Establishing an endowment is an easy and rewarding process. Funds can be set up to provide for a number of vital needs including scholarships, technology, capital improvements, cultural offerings, and more. They can also be named for individuals, companies, or in memory or honor of a loved one.

In order to provide a meaningful level of investment income, the minimum funding level for an endowment is $10,000, which must be reached within three years of the date the fund was established.

Gifts made to endowed funds are invested and managed by the Foundation's Investment Committee. They are guided by professional investment managers and work within the bounds of the Investment and Distribution Policy.
