Endowments are forever. That’s what makes them so powerful. Endowments are unending funding streams that guarantee timeless support for what’s important to the donor. Each year, 4 percent of the endowment goes directly to programs and activities designated by donors. That conservative withdrawal means the endowment will never disappear — which means it will continue feeding the university for generations to come. Endowments enable the university to look to the future with confidence that it will always have resources to discover and explore, to share knowledge, and to serve communities and families. Because of that, the value of an endowment is far more than the initial gift. The funds it generates are endless.

Growing UF’s endowments to $3 billion — that more than any other single campaign goal — will invigorate the university’s aspiration to Go Greater.
