Capital Gifts and Endowment

Capital gifts are gifts that provide for renovating and maintaining existing buildings and campus grounds, major equipment purchases or constructing new spaces on campus and are typically given for a specific purpose or project need. Gifts to the endowment provide ongoing and continuous support to Franklin College and are  invested in perpetuity to produce income and distributed according to the endowment distribution policy. Distribution of endowment income provides support for a college program, student scholarship or faculty position that you have chosen.
