Private support makes all the difference for public universities like SU. No matter your area of interest, SU can match you with an opportunity. Those who are able to endow major gifts make an investment that lasts forever.
An endowment provides a donor with an opportunity to create a legacy, honor a loved one, and support the people and programs at SU in perpetuity. Endowment assets are invested to supply an annual, self-sustaining source of funds for a purpose specified by the donor.
