Endowments

An endowment enables you to leave a lasting legacy at the University of Kentucky. By working together, we can create a fund which supports your desires for your gift as well as the needs of the university. The principal remains intact, and with other contributions or some interest income, the fund grows while only a designated portion of the generated interest is allocated for spending.

Minimum support levels for endowments ensure that the income from the endowment will always support the purpose of the fund. Endowments start at $25,000 for an individual endowed scholarship, with greater gifts creating lecture series, guest professorships, endowed chairs and more.

To learn more about endowments and how you can create a lasting gift in the college or program of your choice, please contact the Office of Development at (859) 257–3911.
