Gifts to the Endowment

Establishing a named scholarship fund can be a very rewarding experience. The college now has more than 300 named scholarship funds, awarding approximately $3 million in named scholarships annually. Students are encouraged to personally correspond with the donors of their scholarships every year, and donors have the opportunity to meet their recipients at the annual scholarship luncheon.

Endowed Chairs can be established and named with gifts in the range of $1.5 million to $2 million. Faculty members recognize a named chair as a great honor, and academic programs benefit in perpetuity from such a gift.

Program Endowments
Endowed program funds provide crucial ongoing support for the major program initiatives and priorities, including religious life activities, global awareness, internships, experiential learning and science equipment maintenance.
