Creating and Naming Endowed Funds

Endowed funds ensure hallmark features of St. Louis U. High will be sustained for future generations. Donors can create and name endowed funds starting with gifts of $50,000. SLUH is honored to recognize these named funds in our annual Gratitude Report and across campus alongside our named Scholarships.  

Funds can be created to support departments or programs within four priority areas: 

Initiated Funds

minimum gift: $50,000

Named funds are initiated with gifts of $50,000, which can be made through installments over a few years.

Sustaining funds

minimum gift: $500,000

Maturing Funds grow to a point where a substantial impact is made on the donor’s area of interest. Donors receive reports on the impact and growth of their fund through ongoing contributions and appreciation from the SLUH endowment. 

Establishment Funds

minimum gift: $1,000,000

Endowed funds of $1,000,000 assure the financial viability of programs and departments at SLUH throughout its third century and beyond. Donors receive reports on the impact and growth of their fund through ongoing contributions and appreciation from the SLUH endowment. Donors who create or grow Establishment Funds are proudly recognized by SLUH as members of the St. Ignatius of Loyola, SJ Society, constituting the school's most impactful donors. 

Endowed Chairs

minimum gift: $2,000,000

SLUH is honored to name chairs of departments or directorships of major programs with gifts of $2,000,000.

"Gone but not forgotten"
