Endowments are long-term investments in the university, held in perpetuity. They provide benefits such as scholarships and support funds to students and faculty year after year, generation after generation. Because the gift principal is invested and only a portion of the income is spent, a donor who creates an endowed gift can be confident that it will grow and continue to support UAB in the years to come.
