Endowment Thresholds

Washington and Lee University aims to create permanent support in the form of endowment to support W&L's highest fundraising priorities today.

Support for Students

Individual named merit-based or need-based scholarships are an important part of ensuring access to a W&L education for today's talented students.

Why Minimums?

Endowments work best when the size of the endowment is large enough that its earnings can truly underwrite its intended purpose. All of W&L's endowment minimums are approved by the Board of Trustees. The minimums are calculated based on how much it costs annually to fund the activity the endowment is supporting.
