Endowed Funds

Creating an endowment - or adding to an existing one - is a wonderful way to make a lasting impact at Alfred University.

With a gift of $25,000 or more, you can create an endowment that will provide income in perpetuity for a specific use. The $25,000 level can be reached with gifts over a period of five years.

The endowment can be in your name, or that of a loved one. Endowments can support a variety of programs at AU. Many donors choose to create scholarship endowments which provide financial assistance for future AU students.

We would be pleased to speak with you about your passions and interests and how they correspond with AU’s needs. Together we can craft an Endowment Agreement that describes the purpose of your fund. If you would like to establish a named endowed fund at Alfred University, please call our office at 607-871-2144 and ask to speak with a major gift officer. 

Once established, you will receive periodic reports on the performance of your fund, and its use. For scholarship endowments you receive the name of the student who receives the scholarship.

Endowments are truly living legacies that create the foundation for Alfred University’s future.

Contributions of any amount can be made to existing endowed funds. Many existing endowed funds are named for loved ones and provide a way to honor or memorialize those who mean so much. To contribute to an existing fund, you can search our list of established endowed funds based on the name of the honoree or the fund. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 607-871-2144.
