Create an Endowment

The Program in Jewish Culture and Society stands among the nation's best because of people like you, who believe in its mission and invest in its future. With a large gift, you can help secure the infrastructure of the program through an endowment, which can support faculty, students, and academic programs in perpetuity. As named funds, they are legacies to your generosity and those you wish to honor. The principal of the fund is never used; the endowment provides a steady source of funds, based on the interest income it generates.
