Endowed Support

An endowed fund is established with a gift from a donor by an institution. It allows for regular withdrawals from the invested capital to be used for ongoing operations or other donor specified purposes.

Endowment growth is a priority at Marietta College.  Each year, our endowment funds important initiatives like scholarships, programs and faculty support and other areas.  A larger endowment would increase the funds available to deliver a world class education for our students and support our talented faculty each year. 

By creating an endowed fund you are committing to the College’s mission and can support both your own values as well as College priorities in perpetuity. An endowment is ultimately the most important guarantee of institutional excellence, generation after generation. Endowment growth positively impacts access and excellence at Marietta. Over the next decade, we will increase opportunities to create Scholarships, fund Distinguished Professorships and Chairs, create new named funds to support and grow programs of distinction and high impact, and provide other social and community experiences for our undergraduates.

To establish an endowed fund, a gift of at least $25,000 is needed. If you are interested in making an endowed gift, please contact: Angela Anderson, Interim Vice President for Advancement, angela.anderson@marietta.edu or 740-376-4705.
