While annual giving provides current support, the endowment serves as the university's long-term "savings account."
It can provide a steady level of income and protect academic and co-curricular programs from periodic budget uncertainties. Gifts to our endowment have long-term effects because the principal, or actual gift, is never spent. Only the investment earnings from the gift are used for funding purposes.
IPFW’s endowment, currently at $53 million, needs your investment.
