The general endowment provides the foundation that enables TERI to build lasting financial stability and ensures its commitment to quality programs and services. Individuals may make outright gifts to the Fund or name TERI as a beneficiary in their estate planning. Multi-year pledge payment schedules can be arranged according to the donor's wishes.
An Endowment Fund provides permanent support for education and research, and other programs and activities. The endowment also helps ensure our ability to pay TERI's dedicated staff a livable wage by augmenting pay rates that have been historically under-funded by the government.
Gifts to the Endowment Fund are permanently restricted and will be invested in perpetuity under the guidance of the Endowment Advisory Counsel and following the Uniform Management of Institutional Funds Act (UMIFA).
Donors to the Endowment Fund will be permanently recognized on our new campus, the Charles R. Cono Campus for Life Quality.
