Science Central Endowment

The Best Way to Provide STEM Education Forever

There’s a way you can remain a permanent presence in our community and ensure that your support for our mission lives on for generations to come: Give an endowed gift. An endowment gift to Science Central today provides a bright future for tomorrow. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

How Endowments Work:

You give a gift to Science Central, which we carefully invest. You can give cash, securities, or other assets to the endowment fund or give to the endowment after your lifetime by leaving Science Central a gift in your will or using by using your retirement account or life insurance benefits. 

Once we receive your gift, we will permanently restrict the gift, and use a small portion of the earnings from the investment each year to support our mission or the particular program or project you’ve designated. Any earnings in excess of this distribution are used to build the fund’s market value. The principal balance of your endowment fund will remain invested to ensure that it lasts forever.

Tip:

You can use an endowment gift to honor someone important to you who appreciates the work we do. Consider designating your endowment in his or her name as a way to celebrate them.
