Endowments are special funds established through the generosity of donors to support various School of Social Work activities. The initial funds provided by the donor (usually at least $30,000) are invested, and the interest each year is used to fund the selected activities; the funds can grow when other people donate to them.
Gifts are donations that can be used immediately to support the mission of the School of Social Work or a particular program or service within the School. Gifts are useful for short-term needs and program goals.
The School has many endowments and gift funds, and you can donate directly to any that you choose. Following are brief descriptions of some of these funds. For information on all of our endowments and gift funds, or to discuss establishing one of your own, please contact Dr. Anne Hughes at email@example.com or (517) 355-7515.
