What does the Office of Endowment Administration do?
Endowment Administration is responsible for administering the College's invested assets. In general, these consist of endowment funds, life income trusts, annuity funds, donor-advised funds, gift securities, and invested intermediate-term working capital. We operate in consideration of College policy and procedures, federal and state regulations, and donor restrictions.
Our primary objectives are: (a) to provide accurate and timely accounting and reporting, (b) ensure terms and conditions of gift agreements are acceptable, (c) provide guidance on spending for compliance with donor intent, (d) communicate and disseminate information to members of the College community and various other constituencies, and (e) serve as custodians of the permanent records.
