Endowed funds at Hastings College
The Hastings College Endowment

Endowed funds play a crucial role in the long-term sustainability and success of Hastings College. Charitable donations made to the endowment maintain their principal balance, which is held in perpetuity, with only a portion of the interest earned being expended annually. 

The Hastings College Foundation maintains two types of endowed funds:

Endowed Scholarships
By establishing an endowed scholarship, you change the lives of students, many of whom could not afford to attend Hastings College without your support. Your gifts secure a source of financial aid in perpetuity while providing an opportunity for you to recognize a loved one, a favorite professor, or your own legacy at Hastings College through the naming of the scholarship.

Endowed Chairs and Professorships »
Endowed funds enable Hastings College to recruit, retain, and recognize distinguished classroom teachers—the kinds of professors who inspire generations of undergraduates. Only eight of the College’s more than 80 full-time faculty positions are supported, in part, through named endowments. Opportunities exist for you to recognize master teachers in any academic area.
