ENDOWMENT

YOUR GIFT TO FUTURE GUSTIES

Gifts to the endowment ensure the long-term financial stability of Gustavus. Endowment funds provide direct support for scholarships, student research, professorships, sports teams, music ensembles, and marquee events like the Nobel Conference and Christmas in Christ Chapel. And because these funds generate revenue year after year, they provide a strong foundation for the College far into the future.

Whether you give to the endowment or the Gustavus Fund, you are showing trust in the College. We are grateful for that trust, and we want to celebrate your gift. Because your philanthropy makes a difference, donor stewardship is a priority for us.
