An endowment is a permanent legacy that matches your vision with the needs and mission of OSU Libraries and Press. Establishing an endowment not only helps OSU Libraries and Press prepare for future needs and expectations, but also ensures that our immediate priorities are successful.
Endowed funds are invested in perpetuity. While a portion of the return from invested funds is distributed to designated priorities and programs, the remaining amount gets reinvested back into the principal, thus benefitting OSU Libraries and Press now and in the future. An endowed fund may be unrestricted or it might be designated for a specific purpose such as providing paid undergraduate internships and graduate fellowships, creating professorships and chairs, or renovating facilities.
When you establish an endowment, you may choose to honor loved ones or favorite library staff members in naming the endowment.
