Endowed Gifts

Your Gift Can Last Forever

An endowment gift to the Delta Gamma Foundation today will enable us to sustain our sisterhood for future generations. When you make a donation to an endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at the Foundation. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

The Foundation also provides the opportunity to sponsor an endowed scholarship or fellowship. An endowment ensures a scholarship or fellowship will be given in perpetuity to deserving Delta Gamma scholars. Read more information about endowing a scholarship or fellowship.

An Example of How It Works

Couple Smiling Longtime Delta Gamma Foundation supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure the Foundation continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.

Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation to the Foundation, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
