Endowment


Messiah College is blessed with a strong endowment of more than $127 million, largely because of the vision and foresight of many of Messiah’s early leaders. The endowment helps to provide for the needs of Messiah each year, including the awarding of student financial aid.

Many donors choose to establish scholarship endowments specifically to support students.
 
Because endowed scholarship funds are perpetual and predictable, these funds will benefit generations of Messiah College students and enable the College to plan more strategically for the future. In addition, endowed scholarship funds are set aside and kept separate from operating and capital fund accounts. The principal of the fund remains intact while the investment income provides much-needed support each year. You can be sure that your endowed scholarship will be secure and that the terms of the agreement will be carefully followed.
 
Endowed scholarship funds are often named for the person or family who establishes the fund, or for someone who they wish to honor or memorialize. In addition, you may tailor the purpose of the scholarship to benefit a specific area of interest. Donors also enjoy opportunities to correspond and meet with the students who benefit from the scholarship.
  
Opportunities to provide financial support and make a difference:

  

  • Named Scholarship Endowment

  • International Student Scholarship Fund
    International students are as enriched by their experiences at Messiah as others are enriched by their global perspectives and cultural backgrounds these students share with the College community. The quality education that international students receive at Messiah equips them to work and serve in unique ways in the world. Many return to their native countries to apply what they've learned at Messiah College.
