An endowment is a donation of money or property to a nonprofit organization, which uses the resulting investment income for a specific purpose. Endowments are designed to keep the principal amount intact while using the investment income for charitable efforts.
We are grateful for the leadership, foresight and generosity of those who established the following endowments at the Newman Center.
