Ways to Give

Endowed Scholarship

Establish an endowment with a minimum gift of $25,000. Endowments:

  • remain in perpetuity
  • use only the income for awards
  • can be established as memorial scholarships or as ways to honor an individual, organization, corporation or foundation

Continuing Named Scholarship

Agree to fund a scholarship program for $5,000 annually for at least five years. Continuing named scholarships can be given in the name of an organization, foundation, corporation or individual.

One-Time Contribution

Add your donation of any amount to an existing scholarship fund. Each college and many departments and centers have already-established scholarships to support their students. The Arizona Assurance program also has a scholarship component.

How to Establish a Scholarship

You can create a gift using cash, bonds, stocks, real estate, bequests, insurance, trusts and other legal instruments.

As a donor, you decide:

  • the basic terms of the award
  • the award level
  • who is eligible for the scholarship
  • how the recipient is selected

We will work with you to maximize the utility of a gift and fulfill your wishes for the award. Please contact us at 626-1338 or if you are interested in establishing a scholarship.
