Endowed Funds

Giving to Ozarks: Endowments

An Ozarks endowment is designed to establish a fund of money that is invested in the University’s endowment portfolio and spins off revenue each year to support the interest the donor has specified. Endowments may be established to enhance all sorts of academic and student support initiatives at Ozarks, including professorships, program and facilities support for a specific academic area, or scholarships.

Named, endowed scholarships have proven to be a particularly attractive gift option for many of the University’s supporters. These scholarships are easy to establish and they are a wonderful, enduring way to honor or memorialize someone you care about. For many alumni and friends of the University, these scholarships stand as a testament to the enduring love and respect the named individual has, or had, for the institution. Anyone can create an endowed scholarship by providing a gift of $20,000 or more to the University for that purpose.

If you’re interested in making an endowed gift to Ozarks, please contact Lori McBee, Vice President for Advancement.
