Endowed Gifts

Your Gift Can Last Forever

An endowment gift to Step Up For Students today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to an endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at Step Up. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

An Example of How This Could Work

Couple Smiling Longtime Step Up For Students supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure Step Up continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.

Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation to Step Up, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
