Endowments provide a permanent, lasting impact to Ferrum College and are vital to the financial stability of the institution. These funds enhance financial aid, academic programs and capital maintenance by augmenting traditional funding sources for the College, in perpetuity.
Gifts to the endowment are invested into a pooled endowment fund and earn interest on the principal amount. The annual payout from the investment income is used to support donors’ designated purposes. Donors can support existing endowments or establish new endowments. Semi-annual reports are sent to donors to apprise them of the status of their investment and its benefit to Ferrum College and our students.
