Restricted Funds

These are gifts made to support a specific program or purpose, providing the donor an opportunity to identify a focus for the contribution. The minimum level to establish a restricted fund is $10,000 and can be paid over a two-year period. Funds can be named after the donor, in honor or in memory of another individual.

Endowed Scholarship Fund

These are gifts that create a lasting opportunity for students as well as a legacy of generosity for a donor. The minimum level to establish an endowed scholarship fund is $25,000 and can be paid over a five-year period.
