Endowed funds are part of the permanent endowment of Tusculum University.
Only the interest earned each year is used for the designated purpose; the principal remains intact. Commitments totaling $25,000 or more are needed to establish a named endowed scholarship fund. An endowed professorship requires a commitment of $500,000 or more, and $1,500,000 or more is needed for an endowed chair. An endowed fund is an excellent way to perpetuate interest in Tusculum University. Unrestricted endowments give the administration and the Board of Trustees the greatest flexibility in meeting priority needs.
