Honorary or Memorial Fund Opportunities

Personalized gift funds are created to make contributions in honor or in memory of someone special to you. You can create a fund in their memory, or contribute to one that's already been set up. To create an endowed fund the gift minimum is $100,000. This gift can be directed to different areas across campus.

Any gift amount in memory or in honor can be made to an already established fund at the University. Make a gift in memory or in honor of someone online ›
