Endowment Gift Opportunities | Non-endowed Gifts
Endowments represent the University's permanently invested capital that generates funds (annual interest/dividend earnings) to support the University.
Hundreds of donors have established endowments with their gifts to UL. Each donor decides which area of the University they wish to assist with their endowment.
Each endowment also provides the donor with a permanent naming opportunity. Oftentimes, endowment funds are named for the donor(s), for loved ones of the donor(s), or for someone for whom the donor(s) have great admiration, i.e., a respected faculty member.
Each year the University makes available part of the endowment earnings for whatever purpose the donor(s) selected when the endowment fund was established. To protect against inflation, and to help each donor's endowment fund grow over time, part of the endowment earnings each year are added back to the endowment principal.
