The Importance of Endowments

While all gifts to the College of Arts and Letters make a real difference in the lives of the university’s students, faculty, and staff, an endowment gift is especially meaningful because it provides a dependable, long-term source of support that reaps benefits year after year. 

An endowment gift is invested by MSU and a portion of the investment income is spent annually, providing funding for the chosen area of support long after new contributions to the fund cease. The long-term benefits of endowments far outweigh the short-term gains of expendable contributions. For example, a $40,000 expendable gift spent outright on student scholarships will provide twenty $2,000 awards in a single year. A $40,000 gift to fund an endowment will provide more than 400 $2,000 awards over 50 years.
