Create a Legacy
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences stands among the nation's best because of people like you, who believe in its mission and invest in its future. Below are a few of the ways in which you can have a lasting impact on the quality of research and education in the college.
You will help secure the infrastructure of the college through an endowment, which supports faculty, students, and academic programs in perpetuity. As named funds, they also are legacies to your generosity or to whomever you wish to honor. The principal of the fund is never used; the endowment provides a steady source of funds, based on the interest income it generates.
|Endowed Faculty Chair||$2 million|
|Endowed Research Fund||$200,000|
|Endowed Graduate Fellowship/Assistantship||$150,000|
|Endowed Lecture Series||$100,000|
|Endowed Undergraduate Scholarship||$25,000|
LAS welcomes gifts of common stocks, bonds, mutual funds, other appreciated securities, or property, which will be managed or liquidated so that the proceeds will enable you to best benefit the college.
Deferred gifts are the result of careful planning that integrates your charitable gift into your overall financial, tax, and estate-planning objectives to maximize the benefits for you and the college. Here are examples of the kinds of deferred gifts through which you can have a lasting impact on the college:
- Charitable Trusts and Annuities
- Pooled Income Funds
- Retained Life Estates
- Retirement Accounts
- Life Insurance
