Increase Endowed Support

Gifts to Eastern Michigan University's endowment is an investment in the University's future. Endowed funds provide a consistent source of income to Eastern Michigan in perpetuity and can support students, programs or faculty in a college or department. Gifts to an endowment are pooled to maximize the investment potential. Each year, a percentage of the market value is awarded and the balance of the earnings is returned to the endowment principal.

Ultimately, the endowment acts like Eastern's savings account. The return, or interest earned, on the investment of an endowed fund will produce a permanent income for the University. By giving to Eastern Michigan's endowment, you will leave a legacy that will support students for generations to come.
