The Endowment

The endowment provides a permanent source of income for Clarke and is a critical part of developing the campus and programs. Gifts to the endowment are invested, with the fund’s  principle maintained in perpetuity. A percentage of the investment income received is expended based on Clarke University’s Board of Trustees Endowment Spending Policy.

Donors may restrict the use of income for a specific program or purpose, such as a scholarship, or place no restrictions on income, which will then be applied to the university's general endowment.

By investing in or creating an endowment today, supporters are investing in the future of Clarke University in a truly impactful way.
