Endowments are forever. When you make a gift to establish an endowed fund, the gift principal is preserved in perpetuity. The University invests the principal to generate a permanent stream of income for your designated area of interest.

Endowments help create long-term financial stability, allowing UNCG to be less dependent on unpredictable sources of revenue. They help the University provide undergraduate and graduate scholarships, professorships, programmatic support, and more, which attract talented students and distinguished faculty.
