Endowment Gift Benchmarks
Endowed funds may be established with a minimum gift or pledge of at least $25,000 through a single gift or through installments
pledged over a period of time mutually agreed upon by the donor and CWRU representatives (typically five years).
Donors also have the opportunity to continue to fund their endowed scholarship after the original commitment is fulfilled
as the income available for specified activities will increase with the value of the endowment.
The above are just samples. Endowments can be created for a number of different purposes like annual competition cups, regatta support,
travel and/or spring break support, recruiting support, etc. We can work with you to define a reasonable use for the funds. In particular,
shell endowments are very popular because you (or someone else) can be honored with a shell named after you in perpetuity. Imagine the
Alumnus X gracing the bow of a Case Crew shell forever!
