Your Gift Can Last Forever
The Power of an Endowed Gift to Mason
An endowment gift provides a brighter future for Mason students. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at Mason. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure that your support never ends.
An Example of Mason Philanthropy at Work
Longtime Mason supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure that Mason continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.
Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation, which the Foundation invests, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our students and programs in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie get a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes because they made a lump-sum gift.
