Endowed Gifts

Your Gift Can Last Forever

An endowment gift to the Georgia State University Foundation today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to an 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 the Foundation. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

Law Students Thankful for Help from Hugh Welborn

Hugh WelbornAs a member of the charter class at the Georgia State University College of Law, Hugh Welborn worked his way through law school by juggling jobs. His recent gift ensures current law students don't have to take the same risks he did by creating the Hugh W. Welborn Scholarship in Law to help ease the financial pressure on students juggling full-time work and classes. Hugh's scholarship is a unique type of gift vehicle called a virtual endowment, which allows a donor to set up a perpetual scholarship through a bequest, retirement plan beneficiary designation, a whole life insurance policy beneficiary designation, or other deferral method.
