University Endowment

Want to leave a personal legacy, or recognize a special individual in a meaningful and lasting way, that will create a stable source of support for generations to come? An endowment gift can do just that!

Endowed gifts are invested directly, with the generated income used to fund your specific philanthropic interests. The fund's principal remains intact; the gift continues to generate income in perpetuity.

An individual's lifespan is limited, but a university endures for countless generations and hundreds of years. An endowed gift helps ensure that adequate provision is made for the students, faculty, staff, programs, initiatives, and facilities of the future.

Donors can also establish an unrestricted endowment, dedicated to helping SSU advance. These unrestricted funds give SSU flexibility to focus on its goals, whether it is advancing research, offering more scholarships, increasing community outreach or offering a lecture or arts series on campus.
