You can create a permanent fund for a specific purpose. Your fund will be invested and managed by the University of Florida Foundation to provide a steady and reliable income stream forever. Endowments may be named to honor you or some other appropriate person.
Here are a few endowment options at UF. Each may take advantage of Florida’s matching gift program to reach the minimum required. For more detailed information on endowed gifts, please consult the appropriate section in the UF Fund-Raising Policy.
Named, endowed scholarships or fellowships
A privately endowed scholarship or fellowship is awarded on need or merit year after year, beginning with a gift of at least $150,000.
Named, endowed professorships
A permanently funded faculty position requires an endowment of at least $300,000, depending upon the area of expertise.
Or, you may endow a fund to sponsor teaching, research and programs in one of UF’s colleges, departments or centers. Depending upon the program involved, naming gifts for an entire unit range from…
- $500,000 – $1.5 million to endow and name a teaching/research center within a college
- $1 million – $3 million to endow and name a university wide center
