An endowment is a gift that holds its principle in perpetuity and is invested to provide income for a specific purpose. Endowments play an integral role in helping Central Wyoming College achieve its goals.
Donors can contribute any amount to the Central Wyoming College Foundation’s general endowment or an already established endowment fund. The minimum required for establishing a new named endowed fund to benefit Central Wyoming College is $10,000.
On a yearly basis, and in agreement with its board policy, the Foundation distributes investment income from over 100 endowment funds to the college for donor-designated scholarships, student support services, and academic programs. Central Wyoming College Foundation uses a weighted formula for calculating payout amounts. The payout policy is calculated to smooth year-to-year variations in market performance so the college can budget more precisely with a predictable and dependable source of funding.
A donor established endowment may only be accomplished via a gift agreement. The staff will endeavor to work with donors to complete a formal gift use agreement, however, other documents such as wills, trusts, beneficiary designations; etc may also serve as the gift agreement establishing an endowed gift.
