The best schools in America often have 1/3 of their faculty in endowed positions.
Endowed faculty positions are important because they:

  • Lower costs by creating a funded revenue stream that would otherwise be paid out of the operating budget
  • Attract the best faculty thereby making their existence on campus essential for recruiting
  • Help keep the faculty-to-student ratio low which, in-turn, contribute to our high rankings among institutional evaluators

Interested in advancing your field of interest? Or perhaps you would want to honor someone’s contributions to society? Let’s work together to create an endowment that satisfies your philanthropic desires and helps your name live on forever in the minds of others.

Endowment gifts are the gift that keeps on giving, an investment that honors people like you (the benefactor), the college, the professor and the students for generations in the life of the college.

We encourage you to let us know your interest, so we can help tailor your support to suit your personal goals.
