Similar to individual endowments, group endowments represent a commitment to and belief in the mission of Aquinas University. Groups with a common bond often choose to create endowments in their name. Such as:
- Aquinas University graduating class
- Academic units
- Regional alumni group
- Graduates of the same academic program
Endowed gifts shall be expended for the gift options cited above once the endowment reaches the minimum required funding level and after the funds have been invested one fiscal year. Because the principal of the endowment is never spent, such a gift represents the enduring benevolence of the donor.
