Endowed gifts exist in perpetuity, extending and growing the impact of each gift. A gift you make today to the endowment will benefit students for generations to come. It is one of the most powerful ways to show your support for the students of today and tomorrow.
Endowed Funds and Planned Giving
Named Endowed Scholarship Funds
By expanding our access to scholarship aid, we can provide sustainable funding that will strengthen the college and that will support students from all backgrounds in perpetuity.
- Full Endowed Scholarship Fund
$1 million or more to generate approximately the income required to cover the cost of tuition for a student receiving full financial aid. An endowed gift of $1.5 million or more generates approximately the annual income required to cover the cost of tuition, room and board. Donors may specify certain broad preferences for recipients such as majors, Ada Comstock Scholars, international students or other key demographics.
- Partial Endowed Scholarship Fund
$250,000 or more to generate income toward financial aid grants. Donors may specify certain broad preferences as described above.
- Unrestricted Endowed Scholarship Fund
$150,000 or more to support students with demonstrated financial need as determined by the college.
Planned Giving: NEW Grécourt Match
A generous member of the class of 1982 has committed $1 million for financial aid to inspire others to make planned gifts to Smith.
Make a new planned gift and your gift will be matched with an immediate donation to financial aid. Planned gifts include those created through a will, living trust, retirement plan or life insurance policy. Planned gifts also include gift annuities that can provide an income stream to the donor or a designee. With the new Grécourt Match, every $10 of your planned gift will be matched by $1, up to $10,000.
Your planned gift can be for any purpose, although financial aid is especially welcome.
