  • Establishing an Endowment Fund

    Endowed funds at Saint Vincent College can be established with gifts totaling $25,000 or more, depending on the type of endowment established. The time period for completing a pledge for an endowed scholarship is generally five years from the inception date. The endowment can be funded through gifts of cash, securities, or property. Any future gifts to Saint Vincent College from the original donor or others, including family, friends or corporate matching gifts, can also be earmarked for the scholarship and will be added to the body of the endowment.

    Upon establishment, the endowment will be managed in accordance to the College’s endowment spending and management policy, as determined by the College Board of Directors. The donor has the opportunity to name the scholarship at this giving level in his or her own name, or in the name of any other individual(s) of their choosing.

    Saint Vincent College endowment funds can be set up to support the following areas. Click on the link to find more information about each type of fund.

    An endowed scholarship fund will provide support for outstanding Saint Vincent College students. 

    An endowed professorship fund will provide support for a faculty position in the school or department of the donor’s choice.  

    An endowed program fund will provide support for a specific program within the College, such as an academic department or other student program.  


    If you are interested in establishing an endowed scholarship fund at Saint Vincent College, any one of the Development Office staff will be happy to help you.
