Give: Endowed Funds

Endowments can honor individuals and perpetuate shared values. Many of Armstrong's endowments have become family traditions with succeeding generations adding gifts to the principal established by the founding donors.

Endowed Funds

Endowed gifts to Armstrong are invested in perpetuity to provide ongoing and stable funding for student scholarships, academic chairs/professorships and academic programs.  The minimum funding levels required to establish a named endowment are generally as follows:

Named Endowed Program Funds

($10,000+ one-time or renewable gifts)

A university’s strength for generations to come is in building its endowment today. The Named Endowed Program Funds for Armstrong provide support for programmatic and departmental uses impacting the instruction of students, critical student support services, and funding support of professional development and community engagement for faculty and staff. Adding your gift of $10,000 or more to Armstrong’s Named Endowed Program Fund will leave a lasting legacy by building the financial stability of Armstrong in perpetuity. Your gift will be invested and a portion of the interest will be used in your designated program area.
