Endowments help keep tuition down by providing the ongoing financial foundation for colleges and universities, particularly private institutions, so that they may carry on the critical work of preparing the next generation to tackle the world’s challenges. A dynamic endowment provides a growing, consistent, and reliable source of income.

Institutional Stability

Contributions to the QU Endowment are invested to provide ongoing support for scholarships and academic programs for our students now and in the future. The endowment provides a reliable source of income in perpetuity, providing ongoing support and stability for the university.

Student Support

Financial barriers can make college unattainable for even the strongest students. Approximately 84 percent of degree-seeking undergraduate students qualify for need-based financial aid. Your investment in a new endowed scholarship fund or one of 140 current endowed scholarship funds will not only encourage and assist the students who receive them, but help Quincy University attract quality students.

Academic Excellence

Academic excellence is grown from leadership. Our faculty is the greatest asset at Quincy University and they shape the future of our students. A wonderful way to ensure leadership and stability within a field of expertise is to endow an academic professorship or chair.

Building the FUTURE of QU

“Endowment is a great way to connect alumni, current students and future generations in sharing educational opportunities for the benefit of society.”
–Bill Taylor ‘60
