Endowed Funds

College of Saint Mary Endowed Funds

Endowed funds play a vital role in the financial sustainability of College of Saint Mary, providing ongoing funding that supports scholarships as well as other important projects and programs. We invest the funds, leaving the principal intact, and use only the income generated each year to support your intent. Because only the interest on the principal is actually distributed, endowed funding can further College of Saint Mary’s mission for years to come.

A donor may initiate and name an endowed fund that will build over the years to fulfill a purpose specified by the donor such as nursing scholarship, fine arts programming, etc.

We are blessed to have received numerous endowment gifts from our alumnae and friends over the years. If you would like more information about establishing an endowment at College of Saint Mary, please contact tcampbell [at] (Terri Wachtler Campbell), Vice President for Alumnae & Donor Relations, at 402-399-2419.
