Endowments

Endowment opportunities

Donors may support any one of the approximately 5,000 existing endowments or establish their own. The funding level for each type of new endowment is set at a level sufficient to achieve the donor’s intent both now and into the future. While endowment levels are adjusted from time to time to keep pace with changing costs, revised levels do not affect previously established endowments.
