Many donors have chosen to provide permanent support through establishment of an endowed fund. Donors have funded endowments through outright gifts, payment of pledges over a period of years, or through bequests.
If you wish to contribute to long term, stable funding for a scholarship or program, consider establishing a permanent endowment in the Madison College Foundation. Each year a portion of the earnings are disbursed to fund the purpose for which the endowment was created.
Gifts of any amount may be made to the Foundation’s general endowment. A new named endowed fund, supporting scholarships, programs or other purposes, may be established with a minimum $25,000 gift. The Foundation’s endowments are invested safely and wisely, according to the Foundation’s investment policy, and managed by an experienced team of professional financial managers. An endowment is literally a gift that lasts forever.
If you are considering an endowment we would love to have a conversation about your goals. Please contact us to get started.

Their vision is that the scholarships to support racial justice while honoring George Floyd will exist into perpetuity. When they learned that an endowed fund requires a minimum balance of $20,000, Paul and Peter offered a $15,000 match gift to encourage others to give and to make it easier to meet the minimum threshold.
