Endowment Giving

An endowment is a university’s financial cornerstone, the core of its ability to fuel progress in research, patient care, and teaching.

Allowing an institution to be less dependent on unpredictable sources of revenue, such as research sponsorship or government aid, endowments ensure that promising programs, individuals, and initiatives have the continual support they need to take the intellectual risks that can pay off in monumental leaps in knowledge.

Establishing an endowment is an act of great generosity and vision. 

When you decide to create an endowment, you understand the importance of supporting Johns Hopkins not only during your lifetime, but for generations to come. You may choose to establish an endowed fund in order to honor a loved one, or to memorialize an important figure in your life, ensuring that your name and generosity will forever be a guiding force in our institution’s success.
