An endowment gift to IES Abroad today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at IES Abroad. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.
The minimum contribution to create an endowed fund is $50,000. The most common is a scholarship fund that provides resources directly to students in perpetuity. Funds may be established in your name or in another name of your choosing.
An Example of How It Works
Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure IES Abroad continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones, with an endowed scholarship in their name.
Susan and Charlie make a $50,000 donation to IES Abroad, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to fund scholarships in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
Scholarship recipients are advised of the legacy of Charlie's parents and are inspired by this generosity.
