Endowment Gifts

What’s your passion?

Whatever cause, project, or cohort you are looking to support, Boston University Academy has a giving opportunity to match. Better still, by endowing your gift, you can make an investment that lasts forever.

How?

Endowed gifts are invested directly, with the generated income used to fund what donors specify. This means that the principal gift is never touched, but continues to generate income in perpetuity.

For this reason, many donors elect to name endowments: to honor a family member, life-changing teacher, or other mentor; preserve the name of their family foundation; or create a personal legacy.

An individual’s lifespan is limited, but a school endures for countless generations and hundreds of years, and the endowment helps ensure that adequate provision is made for the students, faculty, and facilities of the future.

In a nutshell, an endowed gift:

  • Gives BUA flexibility and freedom to embark in new directions and to offer prestige and recognition to benefactors and beneficiaries
  • Ensures regular funding levels for BUA departments, programs, and operations
  • Helps stem rises in tuition by providing needed financial aid
  • Provides donors with an opportunity to create a legacy or honor a loved one and support the people and programs at BUA in perpetuity

The University’s commitment to BUA is that we keep every dollar we raise, which means that increased philanthropic support can significantly enhance the student experience.

Here are some examples:
