An endowment fund preserves capital, offers long-term growth, keeps pace with or exceeds inflation, and can offer significant tax advantages to the donor. An endowment can be named for the donor or in honor/memorial of the person or persons of the donor's choice. Endowments can be created at a minimum gift level of $10,000. Learn about the scholarships we offer. Annual scholarships can also be established and funded each year by a donor awarded using the established criteria.

Gifts of Securities or Mutual Funds
