Creating New Scholarships and Charitable Funds
Several ways exist for alumni, friends, corporations, associations, and organizations to create scholarships, fellowships and charitable funds at Colorado State University.
Expendable funds are used to create annual scholarships, fellowships and research support. A minimum gift of $1,000 opens a named expendable fund account.
Pending Endowment Fund
Pending endowment funds eventually become true endowment funds for scholarship use or other purposes when gifts total $25,000. A fund may be a pending endowment for a period not to exceed five years, with all earnings reinvested during the five-year period. If $25,000 is not accumulated through gifts and interest earnings within five years, the pending endowment becomes an expendable fund.
If you wish to establish an endowment, your gift will create a perpetual source of funding for scholarship use. The principal of the endowment remains intact, while earned income is used to support student scholarships or other programs as per your wishes. A minimum gift or combination of gifts totaling $25,000 establishes a named scholarship for restricted use.
