An endowment is a gift for life. Your original gift is invested and managed in perpetuity by Queen’s University as part of a pooled fund. The annual income generated is used to support the specific purpose for which the fund was established.
Benefits of Establishing an Endowment
- Satisfaction of making a meaningful gift to Queen’s that is important to you – e.g., student aid, a particular program, research initiative, or area of greatest need.
- Establishes an enduring legacy.
- You can name it in honour of someone close to you or secure your personal legacy.
