An endowment is created by a donor with a gift containing a legal stipulation that the original gift may never be expended. These gifts are held and invested in perpetuity by The TWU Foundation for the purpose of generating a permanent expendable income stream from the return on the gift for the purpose the donor desires. The minimum amount to establish an endowment is $25,000. However, an endowment pledge may be fulfilled over a period of five (5) years.
At Texas Woman’s University we are committed to becoming a global leader in Women and Leadership, Health, Experiential Learning and Veterans. You can become part of this commitment through estate and other types of planned gifts that will support our mission today and far into the future. We would love to talk with you about planning a gift to TWU. We’re here to answer all your questions on how you can help us pioneer the future.
