When you make a gift to MSU Denver's endowment, you are truly making a gift with a future! Your endowment gifts guarantee that financial support will remain readily available for the future needs of the university and its students.

Endowed gifts are invested, with the generated income used to fund the program you chose. This means that the principal gift continues to grow over time and generate a steady, reliable source of income in perpetuity.

For this reason, many donors choose to name endowments. Donors can establish a named endowment fund with a gift of $25,000 or more to honor a family member, an influential professor, or mentor; preserve the name of their family foundation; or create a personal legacy. An individual’s lifespan is limited, but institutions like the MSU Denver endure for generations. Endowments help to ensure that adequate provision is made for the students, faculty and facilities of today and tomorrow.

Fund Management

Endowment gifts are invested per the Foundation's investment policy which combines assets to maximize gains. Each named endowment retains its own purpose and account (fund number), by which the MSU Denver Foundation tracks growth in principal and distributions.
