The Value of Endowment

ENDOWMENT IS THE LONGEST-LASTING WAY to sustain University of the Sciences and to advance our mission for years to come. Giving to endowment also allows you, the donor, to make a specific, personal impact by supporting an existing professorship, scholarship or special fund, or by establishing a new fund.

When you make a gift to a single endowed fund or to our general endowment, you are reaching across generations. That is because all gifts to endowment are carefully invested in perpetuity, generating interest each year. We steward these resources vigilantly and draw down only a designated percentage to support an endowment fund's goal or, in the case of general endowment, our operating budget. The capital remains untouched except in the most extraordinary circumstances.
