Salisbury University from the air

Endowment Gifts

Since my time as a student, I’ve proudly watched SU grow in stature and reputation, and in size. Private philanthropy and alumni support make it possible for us to achieve this growth.

Gifts from generous donors have transformational impacts on Salisbury University, enriching the educational experience we provide for students and the ways we serve our community and state. 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. Commonly, endowed gifts support scholarships or professorships, or colleges and schools within the University, ensuring regular funds for departments, programs and operations, as well as student financial aid.

The SU Foundation has different minimum funding levels for various endowments:

  • Scholarships for undergraduate or graduate students - $10,000
  • Faculty support:
    • Endowed professorships - $250,000
    • Endowed chair - $1 million
  • Operational support – naming opportunities for programs, schools and colleges vary

Please contact us to learn more about endowment opportunities!  SU has many ways to recognize its donors who give on an annual basis, as well as those who make major gifts. 

Priorities during The Campaign for Salisbury University include endowments for scholarships, professorships and chairs, as well as programmatic endowments, such as for the new College of Health and Human Services and its School of Nursing, School of Social Work and School of Health Sciences.  We’d love to talk further with you about these or other areas that interest you.  By establishing an endowment, you can create a permanent personal legacy – and provide essential resources to ensure the University’s long-term strength into the future.
