About the Endowment
The endowment is a foundational resource for the future of Ursinus College. Endowed funds are invested to exist in perpetuity, with the principal remaining intact and the investment income spent yearly. These types of funds ensure long-term stability for
the college and typically grow in their value over a long period of time. They offer our supporters a way to leave a legacy that will last for generations into the future.
