Endowed Gifts

Providing a fundamental, ongoing gift that will touch the lives of students every year.

Endowments are the financial foundation of a university. Rather than used for immediate needs, endowed funds are invested. The earnings on these investments provide a stable, ongoing source of funds for scholarships, professorships, operations, and other areas of campus life where there is a need. The goal is to use enough earnings to accomplish the purpose for which the endowment was created, while retaining a portion to allow for growth.

By creating an endowment at Tarleton, you provide a fundamental, ongoing gift that will touch the lives of students every year.

Because endowments generate support forever, they are especially valuable and appropriate for donors who wish to leave a legacy at Tarleton. Whatever your interest, there is most likely an area on campus that can benefit through an endowment.

Through the gift of an endowment, you become a partner in Tarleton's mission to respond to our growing and changing society. You can make a lasting difference in the lives of countless students. We sincerely appreciate your consideration of these opportunities.
