A gift to Grand Valley State University’s endowment is an investment in the university’s future. When you establish or support endowed faculty chairs, academic programs or scholarships, your gift provides perpetual income that will support the long-term strategic priorities of the university and help maintain Grand Valley’s high standards of academic excellence.
Ultimately, the endowment acts like Grand Valley’s savings account. The return, or interest earned, on the investment of an endowed fund will produce a permanent income for the university. By giving to Grand Valley’s endowment, you will leave a legacy that will support students for generations to come.
