In an attempt to create a more sustainable business model for the Southern University A&M College System, the Southern University System Foundation encourages our benefactors to consider an endowment gift. An endowment is a donation where the principal gift remains invested and intact, and the investment income from the endowment is used to fund a program of the donor’s choice.

Our current endowment programs include:

Endowed Professorship Program:
A minimum gift of $80,000

Endowed Scholarship Program:
A minimum gift of $50,000

Valdry Center for Philanthropy Capstone Society:
A minimum gift of $25,000

Endowed Donor Advised Fund:
A minimum gift of $25,000

Felton Grandison Clark Endowed Fellowship Program:
A minimum gift of $10,000
