Endowments

Endowed Gifts

Through endowed funds to benefit programs and people, you can make a permanent gift that stands as a perpetual testament to your belief in the power of public higher education at Plymouth State University.

Named scholarships and fellowships, professorships, and chairs serve as a permanent resource that can be used to meet strategic goals in concert with the University’s educational mission, based on academic excellence, learner-centered teaching, experiential learning, applied research, regional service, and leadership.

Named Scholarship Endowment: Minimum pledge of $25,000
Named Professorship Endowment: Minimum pledge of $250,000
Named Program or Directorship Endowment: $2,500,000 to $5,000,000

Endowments are usually established with payments over three to five years and can be funded through a variety or combination of sources, including: cash, securities, real estate, through gifts by will or testamentary provision, life insurance, charitable trust, and gift annuities. Gifts may be given or pledged over a number of years. Additional gifts to endowments may be made at any time.
