Our Priorities


An endowment, or endowed fund, creates a permanent and self-sustaining source of funding. Every year, a portion of the endowment is paid out to support the fund’s purpose, and any additional earnings are reinvested to increase the value of the endowment. These special funds make a significant impact on the medical center, and have been identified as a funding priority.
