Endowment gifts provide for our long-term financial health and support improvements and repairs to our facilities. Endowment gifts enhance our campus’ technology equipment and programs, offer professional development opportunities for faculty, strengthen financial aid support, and underwrite athletic, academic and extracurricular programs.
Excellent scholarships and programs require substantial, consistent and permanent funding. An endowment is the financial bedrock that provides both stability and flexibility for that funding.
Donors choose to establish or contribute to an endowed fund, creating a lasting legacy. The income from the endowment provides ongoing support to the donor’s chosen priority.
For more information or to learn how you can make a gift to the Endowment, please contact Debra Coleman Hyde, director of institutional advancement, via e-mail or by phone at 860-727-5011.
