Named endowment funds may be given for general operating and development, institutional scholarships or to help the Foundation in specific areas.
Endowment Bequests may be given to the Foundation for a general or a specific purpose, and maybe restricted or unrestricted. For more information, contact the Office of Planned Giving for policy and the general guidelines and examples for using named endowments and bequest language.
