Endowment Gifts 

General Endowment

  • Endowments are maintained in perpetuity
  • Typically, only the investment income is awarded as grants and scholarships
  • Endowment gifts of $1,000 or more may be designated for: 
    • Scholarships
    • Equine research
    • Benevolence


Named Endowments

Beginning at the $50,000 level, naming a Scholarship, Research, or Benevolence Endowment is a thoughtful way to memorialize an individual, couple, corporate entity, or grant-making foundation.

Examples:    The John and Jane Doe Scholarship Endowment
                    The J&J Doe Company Research Endowment
                    The Doe Family Benevolence Endowment
