Securing the Future: Community College Endowments. A Brief Guide to Endowment Planning
American Association of Community Colleges (NJ3)
This guide explains what an endowment is, how and when to create an endowment, how endowments are invested, and how large a donation is required to establish an endowed fund. For community colleges, such contributions ensure long-term funding for critical needs such as student scholarships or instructional equipment to keep up with new technologies. For the donor, endowments can create a lasting legacy or memorial that ultimately affects the lives of thousands of students and families, and their communities.
