Endowment

A strong endowment allows La Salle University students, faculty and administrators to pursue initiatives and endeavors that enhance our ability to live our Lasallian mission.

La Salle offers several ways to make an endowed gift:

  • Endowed scholarships assist students with unmet financial need: $50,000 minimum to endow a scholarship.
  • Endowed chairs enhance the quality of the faculty and the educational experience for students: $2.5 million minimum needed to endow a chair.
  • Endowed professorships recruit and retain the best faculty: minimum $1 million commitment is needed for a fully endowed professorship.
  • Gifts of any amount may be added to existing funds that support scholarships, academic programs and unrestricted funds.

Endowed funds are established in accordance with the donor’s interests and may be created in a specific discipline, in a specific department, or for use within a college or across the university. The fund generally carries the name of the person or organization that the donor wishes to honor. Gifts may be payable over time to achieve the minimum necessary for naming.
