Creating an Endowment
An endowment at the University of Houston-Victoria, is a stable investment that yields secure, significant annual returns. Guaranteeing support for the future, endowments fund a variety of campus-wide initiatives and programs that include student scholarships, faculty research and development, and distinguished chairs and professorships
An endowment creates a permanent legacy for UHV and UHV students. Endowed gifts are placed in a permanent fund and a portion of the income earned from that fund provides benefits.
Endowed Scholarships: Carry the name of the donor or someone the donor wants to honor and provide scholarship assistance to UHV students. An endowed scholarship can be started with a $10,000 gift, payable over five years. Additional gifts may be contributed over time to increase the amount of the endowment, so that greater scholarship monies can be distributed from the earnings.
In addition to endowed scholarships, UHV welcomes non-endowed scholarship giving with a minimum gift of $600. Different from endowments, these awards provide a one-time financial assistance opportunity for our students.
Endowed Professorships and Chairs: Carry the name of the donor or someone the donor wants to honor, and allow UHV schools and programs the opportunity to attract and reward distinguished faculty. Endowed Professorships and Chairs can be initiated with a $250,000 gift, payable over five years.
By creating a lasting and meaningful difference in the lives of UHV students, endowments enable donors to create a perpetual source of scholarship funds. Scholarships may be an important criteria in determining where outstanding students choose to pursue their education.
