Endowment Giving

Ways you can help grow our endowment

Endowment support is vital to the Tepper School’s future. Our endowment is significantly less than the majority of our peer schools in the Top 20. This impacts the number and amount of fellowships we can offer to students and increases our dependency on tuition. With the support of our alumni and friends, it is our goal to grow the endowment significantly over the next decade. Endowed fund giving opportunities start at $50,000, payable over five years. Here are two examples: 

 

Endowed Named Fellowship Funds

The donor makes a gift of at least $50,000, payable over five years. Once the fund reaches the endowment minimum of $50,000, a student will begin to receive the payout from the fund in the form of a fellowship. Donors can name the fund as they wish. Donors receive annual financial reports, details on the student the fund is supporting and an opportunity to meet the funded student. Endowed fellowship funds exist in perpetuity.

 

Endowed Named Program Support Funds

The donor makes a gift of at least $50,000, payable over five years. Once the fund reaches the endowment minimum of $50,000, the fund’s payout will support the program or department (i.e. the PhD program, the MBA program, the Accelerate Leadership Center, etc.). Donors receive annual financial reports. Endowed program support funds exist in perpetuity.
