Winthrop’s top endowment priorities include: increasing student scholarships, both need- and talent-based scholarships and endowed funds to support faculty and research experiences. Winthrop’s doors are open to students from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, including first-generation college students.
This inclusive ideal enriches the entire campus community and enables remarkable young men and women to pursue their dreams.By contributing to the endowment, you strengthen the permanent capital of Winthrop. Your gift establishes an enduring legacy that will benefit students and faculty in perpetuity. Endowed gifts strengthen Winthrop in several ways:
Endowments can be funded through a three- to five-year pledge period. The donor can choose to pay the pledge monthly, quarterly, or annually. Donors can make a gift by credit card, check or through stocks.Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, or other securities allow a substantial gift to Winthrop at minimal cost resulting in a tax deduction based on the value of the security on the date of the gift. With long-term appreciated securities (those held longer than 12 months), a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair-market value of your gift will be granted and capital gains tax on the appreciation avoided.
