Many donors choose to establish or contribute to an endowed fund, creating a lasting legacy. The income from the endowment provides ongoing support to the donor's chosen priority.
Endowment is the financial bedrock that provides both stability and flexibility for Saint Louis University. SLU invests endowed funds and uses a portion of the income for the purpose the donor specifies, while the remainder is reinvested in the fund to keep pace with inflation.
Endowed funds can be unrestricted, providing a source of 'venture capital,' or designated for a wide range of purposes, including scholarships, fellowships, professorships, chairships, research and maintenance of facilities.
Endowments may be named for the donor and/or someone a donor wishes to honor or memorialize.
