Giving to the Endowment

A sound endowment is the financial bedrock upon which Case Western Reserve University pursues its mission.

The university's ability to sustain operations and make targeted investments in the future hinges on the size and strength of the endowment.

In addition to providing a permanent stream of income for the university, endowment funds are a meaningful way to honor or memorialize family members, friends, or mentors. Donors can establish endowed funds through an outright gift or through a life income gift or bequest that converts to an endowed fund upon maturity.

Naming opportunities for general endowment funds begin at $25,000. For more information about supporting the endowment at Case Western Reserve University, please contact the development office at 216-368-4352.
