Gifts to our Endowment are particularly valuable because they are invested for the long-term, creating a permanent source of funding for ongoing priorities, such as financial aid, faculty and staff support, and facilities maintenance. Only a portion of the income earned annually is used to support these priorities. The balance of the earning is channeled back into the Fund, so that the endowment continues to grow over time.
A carefully managed endowment is an integral part of a well-established and successful school. We are grateful to our generous donors who, over the years, have supported USM through their Endowment gifts. They have ensured USM's tradition of excellence for generations to come.
An endowment fund can be a one-time, one-person arrangement or it can be an ongoing arrangement to which many people contribute.
