ESTABLISH A LEGACY OF SUPPORT How It Works • You give cash, securities or other assets to an existing endowment or an endowment you create with WVUF. If you can't give up assets today, consider making the gift in your will or other estate plan, specifying that you would like your gift to be used to fund an endowment. • You determine if your endowment will be designated to fund a specific program or service, or given without restrictions to allow our board of directors to direct the fund to our most critical needs. • We use a small portion of the fund to support our mission, but the balance always remains invested in order to perpetuate the fund. Throughout our lifetime, most of us strive to make a difference in the lives of others, providing gifts to the people and causes we value. Wouldn't it be nice to know that you could continue to change lives even after you are gone—creating a legacy of support for the causes most important to you? By creating an endowment with the West Virginia University Foundation—or adding to our existing endowment—you can give a gift that lasts forever. ENDOW YOUR ANNUAL GIFT Make a plan so that the programs and goals most important to you continue thriving after your lifetime. If your annual gift is: Amount needed to endow your gift forever:* $1,000 $25,000 $2,500 $62,500 $5,000 $125,000 *At a 4 percent endowment spending level, 25 times an annual gift amount equals a perpetual gift.
