An endowment gift to Bates provides a brighter picture for the future. When you make a gift to the endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowment gifts are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment may be used to address immediate needs at Bates, while the remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.
How It Works
Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie want to make sure Bates continues to thrive long after they're gone. So they make a $500,000 gift to Bates, which is invested. Each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support Bates in honor of the Joneses. The rest of the income is reinvested in the fund, which allows it to support the college indefinitely. Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
