Ways to Give

Endowed Scholarship

Establish an endowment with a minimum gift of $25,000. Endowments:

  • remain in perpetuity
  • use only the income for awards
  • can be established as memorial scholarships or as ways to honor an individual, organization, corporation or foundation

Continuing Scholarship

Agree to fund an annual scholarship program for at least five years. Continuing scholarships can be given in the name of an organization, foundation, corporation or individual.

One-Time Contribution

Add your donation to an existing scholarship fund. Each college and many departments and centers have scholarships to support their students. The Arizona Assurance program also has a scholarship component.

How to Establish a Scholarship

You can create a gift using cash, bonds, stocks, real estate, bequests, insurance, trusts and other legal instruments.

As a donor, you decide:

  • the basic terms of the award
  • the award level
  • who is eligible for the scholarship
  • how the recipient is selected

We will work with you to maximize the utility of a gift and fulfill your wishes for the award.
