Endowed Scholarships

A scholarship can be established with an endowed gift. When gifts are made this way, the funds are invested and the interest earned becomes a perpetual source of funding which means that the scholarship lives forever. Donors may name their scholarship for themselves, a friend or family member, a business or an organization. Endowed scholarships made to the A&M-Central Texas Foundation require a minimum $25,000 contribution based on current interest rates and the projected value of the interest on the contribution.

Endowed Giving Procedures

An endowed gift is a wonderful way to leave a lasting legacy at A&M-Central Texas. As you prepare to make your endowed gift, here’s how it works:

  • Gifts are irrevocable and deposited as endowment principal unless otherwise designated by the donor as an “expendable” gift.
  • Endowment gifts are invested with The Texas A&M University System and structured to generate an estimated annual payout of five percent.
  • All new fully funded endowments will award once the account reaches maturity. This timeline can vary but may be between 12-18 months.
  • Donors making an endowed gift may choose to add an additional amount to facilitate an immediate award.
