Ways to Give


Endowments provide perpetual income for the College through investment of principal funds. These gifts may be unrestricted, providing for the greatest needs of the College, or restricted to a particular use. Endowments are established through outright gifts, pledges paid over a period of years, deferred gifts, such as trusts or insurance expectancies, and through estate plans. Following are several types of endowments that can be established by alumni and friends to create support now and into the future.


Professorships and Chairs

Endowed positions aid in the recruitment and retention of outstanding faculty by generating income for salary supplements and teaching/research support.
