Endowed Gifts & Scholarships

Endowed Gifts

An endowed gift is a gift that keeps on giving — it provides the gift of an Aquinas College education for generations to come. The gift exists in perpetuity — it is the future of Aquinas College and our students.

The endowment provides the second source of stable revenue for the College in addition to tuition and annual giving. Aquinas College is committed to building a strong endowment in order to continue to deliver greater value and attain higher levels of quality than would otherwise be possible.
