Capital and Endowed Giving: A Legacy of Extraordinary Generosity

Alumni, parents and friends are often interested in seeking opportunities to support the University’s mission through gift planning around institutional priorities and donor interest.  

Capital and endowed gifts typically form part of a portfolio of giving to the University, which includes a leadership annual gift. Examples where recent capital and endowed gifts have made a marked impact at UDM include University Ministry, residential life, athletics and the University library.  Targeted support for each of our colleges for new and innovative programs has also been vital to the success of these programs.

Capital and endowed gifts may be funded via a combination of outright gifts of cash and securities, limited partnerships, real estate, other forms of tangible personal property and may include a planned gift component including bequests, trusts and annuities or similar vehicles. 

For additional information regarding capital and endowed giving, please contact Barbara Milbauer, Vice President of University Advancement at 313-993-1540.
