How Endowments Work

Endowments are funds that are permanently invested and managed by professionals, to generate a steady source of capital and provide a consistent income stream for the University.

  • An endowment is somewhat like a permanent investment account, where each contribution becomes invested principal. 
  • A portion of the fund’s earnings (but not the invested principal) are used each year to support specific charitable purposes, but because the rest of the earnings are returned for reinvestment, the endowment grows over time. 
  • By growing an endowment, we can offset the rising cost associated with carrying out its charitable purpose. 

Please call the Foundation Office at 866-448-3867 to discuss various endowment opportunities with a gift officer.

Institutional Enhancement

To expertly train the next generation of leaders, we must continually make routine improvements to our educational infrastructure. Through your generous contributions to support our facilities, equipment and programming endowments, our students gain hands-on exposure to the technologies used by their future employers.
