Named, Endowed & Matched Gifts

Named Gifts

A named-gift is a one-time or annual gift made in the form of cash or stock and the gift is made in honor of the donor or an individual of their choice. Naming opportunities are dependent upon the gift amount and examples of named gifts include scholarships, professorships, rooms, centers, colleges, buildings, or other university initiatives. 

Endowed Gifts

Endowed funds require a minimum investment of $50,000 and can be applied towards scholarships, professorships, department chairs, or other university initiatives, as desired by the donor. The lead gift is invested and a portion of the fund is available for annual distribution. Available endowment opportunities are dependent upon the value of each gift. 

Matched Gifts

Does your employer or foundation match philanthropic gifts? If so, please inform us at the time of making your contribution. Roosevelt will then work directly with you and your employer to secure their contribution.
