Giving now for perpetual impact
Your gifts to an endowed fund at Lewis & Clark sustain our students, faculty, programs, and campus for years to come.
That’s because we invest gifts to endowed funds and spend a portion of the income earned from the investment each year. The rest is added to the original principal, which continues to grow, extending the impact of your support into the future.
Establishing a new endowed fund in honor or memory of someone creates a legacy for you and for Lewis & Clark students and faculty. Our senior development officers will work with you to outline your interests and goals, and identify appropriate opportunities for turning your ideas into living endowments.
Enhancing access and excellence
- Endowed scholarships help ensure that creative and inquiring minds are able to come to and graduate from Lewis & Clark.

- Endowed lectureships help extend the Lewis & Clark experience to wider academic and public audiences.
Increase your impact
