Gifts to the Endowment - Create a Legacy
An endowment establishes a permanent fund which provides perpetual, annual support for Reinhardt University. Your gift to establish an endowment creates a lasting legacy in your name or in the name of someone you wish to honor or memorialize.
Your endowment benefits a Reinhardt priority of your choice, or you may give the College discretion to apply the payout from your gift to one of its highest priorities.
The concept is simple:
All endowed funds are established by a written gift use agreement between the donor(s) and Reinhardt University;
Your gift is invested prudently, in accordance with College policies, so that over time the endowment's buying power is preserved;
Each year, a percentage of your endowment's market value is used to benefit what you designate in your gift use agreement;
Your endowment will be used for the purpose that you designate, consistent with College policies.
Endowments Support Diverse Purposes
The minimum amount to establish a named endowment fund is $25,000.
Types of endowments include:
- Endowments to Enhance Student Excellence
Scholarships help Reinhardt attract and retain high-ability students, student-athletes and students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend college. Examples include merit scholarships, need-based scholarships and athletic or choral scholarships.
- Endowments to Enhance Faculty/Staff Excellence
These endowments enhance Reinhardt's ability to attract and retain the excellent faculty and staff who are at the core of the College's mission. Examples include Endowed Chairs, Distinguished Professorships, Distinguished Lectureships and Research Funds.
- Endowments to Enhance General Excellence
These endowments allow funds to be applied to the College's highest priorities, as outlined in the strategic plan. They may be targeted at specific areas to the College to support key strategic priorities in that area.
