Endowments are funds that provide permanent impact.

Endowment fund earnings are designated for purposes including:

  • Student scholarships
  • Fellowships or faculty professorships
  • Student internship support
  • Education abroad opportunities
  • Research projects
  • Professional speaker series and more

Endowment funds ensure the stability and quality of our University for generations to come. Endowments are held and managed by the Murray State University Foundation, Inc., and require a minimum
gift of $25,000 payable over five years. Your endowment fund can benefit a school or college or specify a department or program.

We deeply value your interest in considering this investment with the University and we are committed to working with you to ensure that your endowed fund generates your intended philanthropic impact for Murray State University and our students. For more information, contact the office of development today at 270.809.3001 or 1.877.282.0033 or email msu.giving@murraystate.edu

Growing your Endowment Fund

Once established, your endowment fund will be included in the investment pool owned and managed by the Murray State University Foundation, Inc. and annual earnings will fund the mission of your established fund. Growing your endowment fund increases your impact overtime and is easily done by making annual gifts and designating them to the fund’s principal balance.
