Building a Legacy -
Endowments drive Trine's Future
Lives well lived lead ultimately to a better world. What legacy do you wish to leave?
Many alumni find fulfillment in ensuring the continued success of their alma mater by establishing endowments. An endowed fund generates interest income while leaving the principal undiminished. With the principal protected, the endowment provides income in perpetuity. Trine University needs endowed funds because they provide a consistent cash flow year after year.
Such funds provide scholarships to talented students in need. They also fund continuing education to keep Trine University professors at the top in their fields, new equipment to support Trine’s leadership in education programs, and upgrades to keep the University abreast of evolving technology.
Increased endowment ensures Trine’s long-term vitality while lessening dependence on tuition revenue. This allows for long term planning even in times of uncertainty, and offsets rising cost.
