Establish an Endowment
The creation of an endowment gives alumni and friends the chance to help shape Miami University Athletics now and in the future. The principal of the gift - which can be given either with a one-time gift or gifts made over a period of years - is invested and grows over time. The endowment then provides an annual distribution that is used for the designated purpose. Establishing an endowment is a great way to make a lasting impact on Miami University Athletics.
The minimum financial commitment needed to establish an endowment at Miami University is $25,000. However, current and retired faculty/staff can create named endowments at $10,000. While endowments do exist for a variety of programs and capital projects, they are more frequently used in athletics for scholarships and each year the annual distribution from the endowment is awarded to a current student- athlete.
Contribute to an Established Endowment
While establishing an endowment requires a minimum financial contribution, Miami University Athletics, thanks to the generous support of others, already has a variety of established endowments that donors can add to or invest in at any time that do not require any minimum gift level.
