Have A Unique Impact

A Major Gift can afford you a unique impact on the mission of CEHD because a Major Gift will fund our highest priorities. Every gift is important and every gift is unique. We will work to advance your goals through your gift's structure and focus.

Current Use or Endowment?

When you support CEHD with a Major Gift, your donation may be directed for "current use" or toward an endowment.
Current Use Gifts: these gifts are spent down during a timeframe, typically three to five years.
Endowment Gifts: whether to establish or increase a fund, the principal is managed to generate interest income for funding.


Your Major Gift can be designated to support your area of interest, or you may structure your gift without restrictions. Unrestricted gifts provide CEHD's leaders maximum flexibility to address timely needs in the education field. Designated gifts allow our passionate donors to connect their interests with the ongoing work of CEHD faculty and its students.
