How Does Endowment Work?

Give - Juniata Scholarship Fund

Individuals make gifts to endowment in two ways - they either give to an existing endowment or establish their own.

Individuals can choose to support or establish scholarships, professorships, or programs. Within those three broad categories, many options exist for those wishing to help Juniata, its faculty, and its students.

Juniata's overall endowment is constituted of money given by alumni, friends of the College, and parents of current and past students that is then invested.

The College's investment policies are structured to enable Juniata to satisfy donor goals and to generate sufficient interest over time to grow the principal, keeping pace with inflation.
