The lifeblood of any university is the generous financial support from its donor community. These gifts are both varied in their size and impact. But an endowment, by design, is unique among those gifts, as it benefits both current and future generations by being invested in perpetuity and by providing ongoing program support. These collective gifts over time, combined with strong investment performance, ensure the long term stability and growth of the institution. A $1 million gift made 10 years ago and invested in the Pooled Endowment generated $576,000 in support for professor salaries, student scholarships, and institutional research, while the corpus of the original gift would have grown to $1.1 million. This is because endowments, as long-horizon investors, have a greater investment opportunity set and better tools to protect the endowment from the myriad risks that exist in today's market.
Your continued support of Tulane helps us achieve our goal to create, communicate, and conserve knowledge in order to enrich the capacity of individuals, organizations and communities.
