Create An Endowment

Create an Endowment with the Bethlehem University Foundation

Donors who wish to provide a sustaining and  lasting gift do so through an endowed gift to the Bethlehem University Foundation. The Foundation invests your gift in the United States and uses the interest earned to provide perpetual funding for your intention, in your name, each year. Annually, the Foundation makes a disbursement from the proceeds of the endowment to support Bethlehem University. Endowed gifts have been established to fund specific faculties or programs at the University, to provide funds that help faculties grow, to buy equipment, to pay for educational programs, or general operational expenses of the University. A Board restricted endowment allows the Foundation the means to directly respond to the most pressing needs at Bethlehem University. With a gift of $100,000, a donor can fully fund a permanent and perpetually named endowment. A minimum gift of $30,000.00 can establish the base for an endowment. Endowments can be established by a down payment with a signed pledge to complete payments over a period of time. Endowments can also be established as the result of numerous individuals pooling their gifts into a single fund. Click here to view and download an Endowment Agreement Form.
