Establishing an Endowment

Provide Clemson with financial stability. Endowments are critical as they give back to Clemson in perpetuity.

Gifts to endowments are not spent; rather they are invested to maximize the return on investment and create income that is used to fund the specific areas designated by the endowment’s creator. As the endowment continues to grow through a steady flow of funding each year, it generates greater levels of income and impact.

The goal is to ensure that the principal maintains its purchasing power over time to support future generations. The larger the endowment is, the greater the income that can be provided; therefore, there are more opportunities available for students, faculty and strategic University programs.
