Endowments

Endowments make a lasting difference. Endowment is the lifeblood of any university, relieving the budget from tuition dependency and serving as an income stream and savings account at the same time. We are proud that Quinnipiac’s endowment has risen from $9.9 million in 1994 to $350 million in 2014.

To learn more about endowments at Quinnipiac University, please call Steven C. Greaves, director of gift planning, at 203-582-3995.
