(translation: you do good forever)
An endowed fund is a gift in which the principal (sometimes called the corpus) remains untouched and is never distributed. For this reason, you will hear endowments referred to as gifts that last in perpetuity.
The award or scholarship comes in the form of interest that the principal/corpus generates, which is then distributed as a scholarship or program funding (whatever purpose has been designated by the donor).
You can endow an Academic Scholarship (a minimum of $10,000) or a Presidential Scholarship (a minimum of $15,000). These endowed funds will ensure that deserving SFCC students will have support in perpetuity.
Endowed scholarships are one of the most important ways you can support SFCC students and programs. Check out the testimonials Go to Testimonials to see how donors just like you have transformed lives of hardworking SFCC students.
Contact Kelly Marquez Smith at (505) 428-1175 or email@example.com for more information on creating an endowment.
When next you update your will, please consider SFCC. There are several good reasons why.
- It will be your gift to the entire Greater Santa Fe community…and to countless young adults who will be educated in the most in-demand skills. Additionally, their families and our local economy will benefit from your generosity.
- This is MAJOR philanthropy ANYONE can afford. You do not have to be wealthy to make a charitable bequest that has a BIG impact. A relatively modest bequest for an endowed scholarship will grow under our good stewardship into a small fortune within just a few decades.

Employers especially see the value of naming something like a classroom or even a building: it establishes an attractive brand among a big pool of the job-candidates-in-training.
Individuals and foundations also can honor a family or business name…or as a memorial to a loved one, favorite educator, or philanthropist.
