Endowed Gifts

A long-term commitment.

Endowed funds may be created for scholarships, fellowships, lectureships, research, professorships, library acquisitions, academic chairs, scientific and technical equipment, capital improvements or other educational purposes of William & Mary.

Donors may use either outright or deferred gifts to establish named endowed funds. The College of William & Mary Foundation works with each donor to prepare guidelines for the administration of each named endowed fund. Guideline length and degree of specificity depend upon the donor’s wishes and particular circumstances.
