Xavier Endowment

I want to support: Xavier's future

Gifts to the University's endowment are a promise to ensure Xavier's future. An endowment is a sign of fiscal strength, and growing the endowment is fundamental to sustaining Xavier's long-term vision of being the nation's leading comprehensive Jesuit Catholic University.

"The financial aid we had was really the Jesuits, because they were the bulk of the teachers here. The older alums ought to be thinking they're repaying the Jesuit endowment that they had when they were here."
-Gerald De Brunner, Class of 1959

Xavier has an endowment today that's smaller than at most other Jesuit universities and puts Xavier at a distinct disadvantage. Xavier offers several ways to grow the endowment by making an endowed gift:

  • Endowed scholarships can tip the scales in a student's decision to enroll: $50,000 minimum to endow a scholarship payable over time.
  • Endowed chairs enhance the quality of the faculty and the educational experience for students: $2 million minimum needed to endow a chair.
  • Endowed professorships recruit and retain the best faculty: minimum $1 million commitment is needed for a fully endowed professorship.

Many corporations match the charitable contributions of their employees. If they do, a few extra steps could double or in some cases triple the value of your gift to Xavier!
