The College’s Endowment Program allows us to further our educational and scientific independence, promote quality, and ensure financial stability.
In recognition of varied interests, available endowment opportunities include a variety of activities, from bricks and mortar support to CREOG options to a robust menu of annual meeting opportunities. With options ranging from $25,000 to $500,000, we offer something to meet everyone's individual financial considerations. The College extends the standard naming duration to "life plus ten" – so that your generosity may be recognized during your lifetime and for a decade beyond.
A gift of cash is the easiest and most direct way to create an endowment with the College, but we gratefully welcome gifts of appreciated securities, stipends, or real estate. It is also possible to create an endowment through a future gift from an estate. We can also structure some pledges to be fulfilled over a period of up to three years.
If you would like to learn more about how you can make a meaningful and lasting contribution to your profession, contact Katie O’Connell at 202-863-2546 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
