Endowment

There are many different endowment options when considering a donation to PNWU. All of PNWU’s endowment gifts can be a naming opportunity. Below are the different levels for an endowed gift.

Endowed Scholarship: An Endowed Scholarship must be at least $30,000. This gives the donor the opportunity to support student scholarships in perpetuity.

Endowed Professorship: An Endowed Professorship must be at least $100,000. This gift will provide a faculty stipend position with the revenue from the endowment fund specifically set up for that purpose. This position can be in a certain department.

Endowed Chair: An Endowed Chair must be at least $2.5 million. This is an opportunity to provide the salary for a full time faculty member with the revenue from the endowment. Much like a Professorship, this can be designated to a particular department.
