 Endowed Funds

An endowment is a permanent fund supporting a purpose of your choosing. Depending on an individual passion or interest, the endowment, which provides funds in perpetuity, can be focused or wide-ranging. The principal of the gift is invested and grows over time, while quarterly distributions provide a steady, reliable source of income to the designated program. This ensures the gift will provide benefits year after year, generation after generation.

Endowment funds can support:

  • Scholarships and fellowships
  • Professorships, lectureships and chairs
  • Research, programs or other purposes
  • Unrestricted use

Distributions from endowments transform lives at Miami Law each year.

You can use almost any type of asset — cash, securities, real estate or other property. Bequests and other deferred gifts, including those that provide life income to you or another beneficiary, can also fund endowments.

Named Endowments

To create a new endowment with a name you choose, Miami Law has several options, starting at $25,000. You can support an existing endowment with a gift of any size.

 Estate/Planned Giving

In these unique economic times, contributions from alumni are more important than ever. While you may find it difficult to give a monetary donation at this time, you can still continue to support the University of Miami School of Law through planned giving.

Planned giving can help you balance your charitable interests with your personal financial goals while also helping you realize significant tax and other benefits for you, your heirs, and your estate. Through planned giving, you can make a gift you might have otherwise thought impossible.

To learn how easy it is to leave a legacy, please contact: Cynthia Beamish, Executive Director, University of Miami Planned Giving Office, cbeamish@miami.edu or 305-284-4342.
