There are two categories of annual giving: unrestricted and restricted.
Unrestricted gifts are made without directions on their use, which provides the college financial flexibility to address needs.
Restricted gifts carry the donors’ designations for their use to support a particular purpose. These gifts are important and appreciated, but they cannot be used to underwrite the college's operating budget or reallocated for use where most needed.
Donors may provide an annual scholarship to a student enrolled in the College of Business. Annual scholarships may be designated with the name of the donor or of individuals the donor wishes to honor.
Contributions may be made for annual awards to outstanding graduate students or faculty in the College of Business. Annual awards may carry the name of the donor or persons the donor wishes to honor.
Endowed giving provides a large and long-term base of support for the College of Business.
Endowments for scholarships, professorships, fellowships and endowed chairs have lasting impact on the College, its students and faculty. Endowment gifts are invested and a portion of the earnings is used for the endowment’s purposes each year.
Planned and Deferred Giving
Planned and deferred gifts integrate charitable support into a donor’s overall tax and estate planning objectives in ways that maximize benefits for both the donor and the College. Please note that deferred giving instruments are closely regulated by law and require special arrangements and tax treatment. The College can provide information on planned and deferred giving in confidence and without obligation.
