Ask A CPA - College Planning & Financial Aid

What Is An Endowment ?

Endowment Funds are funds owned by an institution and invested to produce income to support the operation of the institution. Many educational institutions use a portion of their endowment income for financial aid. A school with a larger ratio of endowment per student is more likely to give larger financial aid packages.
