Create an Endowment

An endowed gift creates an invaluable legacy that provides sustainable funding for generations to come. An endowment can be used to support a scholarship, fellowship, professorship, or research fund already in place, or to establish a new one, which you may wish to name for yourself or in honor of another person.
