CON ANNUAL FUND
The money received into these funds is spent each year for its designated purpose, so your yearly gift is vital!
Thank you! Below are 6 methods for making your annual fund gift:
Unlike annual funds which are depleted each year, endowments are permanent gifts for the future. Such gifts are paid (unneeded insurance policies, appreciated stock, check, property, or some combination) over a total of 5 years or less. In addition to the various forms of "cash" listed above, an endowment goal can be met through a
willed/deferred gift or some combination.
The earned interest from the endowed gift amount creates its award each year. Criteria for the award is established by the donor(s) in a Gift Agreement with the Medical and Health Science Foundation and the CON. The Gift Agreement ensures the award amounts are spent according to the donor's criteria and that the original gift itself is never spent. Safeguarding the original gift amount permits perpetual gifts.
Endowments are a financial security blanket. They help improve national rank because the total endowment level is a measure of future financial stability. While each endowment is unique, MHSF endowments start at $25,000 and can be made for any amount above that. The three main categories are:
Research- provides great learning opportunities for our students while also improving healthcare in our region, state, and beyond. Research is required of all PhD students and faculty, but such provides vital opportunities for other students and faculty as well.
Scholarship- May be based on merit, financial need or combination. For example, a $50,000 scholarship would yield $2,000 every year. A full scholarship ($250,000) provides $10,000 annually.
Faculty Support- additionally a Distinguished Professorship for $333,000 is matched (2:1) by NC such that it awards $20,000 annually.

Giving through your
will, bequest, retirement plan, or charitable trust are a few examples of giving back to your alma mater in the future, but with no costs now. Becoming a member of the Leo Jenkins Society can be as simple as documentation from your will of the line where you include CON. We don't need a copy of your whole will! It also does not have a minimum amount. If you anticipate your willed gift will be $25,000 or greater, we prefer a gift agreement to accompany it also, so your wishes are documented for later reference.
There are prime spaces (lobbies, auditoriums, simulation labs, suites, and faculty offices) within the CON as well as the naming this outstanding college itself. While an excellent partnership with a business, it is also a wonderful opportunity to honor or memorialize someone.
