Support our more than 2,600 students and help the school grow even stronger.
Gifts to the College of Business, Endowment of Excellence, and the Commerce Club provide the dean with unrestricted dollars, which he uses to support key initiatives of the college, including, but not limited to, student support and faculty research. This funding falls into the category that is often the most difficult to raise, yet over and over again makes the most difference to the most people. We can never anticipate every contingency or opportunity tha may arise. Yet, we need to be prepared.
Endowment gifts provide for support in perpetuity of students (scholarships), faculty (chairs, professorships, travel grants, prizes), and programs (funds for research, conferences, scholars and executive in residence, student amenities) of the College of Business.
Endowments are invested in the market through the East Carolina University Foundation, and 4.5% of the earnings interest is distributed, with any additional interest earned reinvested in the fund to help grow its value.
