An endowment is a permanent gift that provides V- Club Athletics with a secure source of future revenue. Endowed funds can be made to a specific athletic scholarship or be directed toward V- Club athletic facilities. They can also be classified as unrestricted (endowed) funds to support V- Athletics. A minimum commitment of $25,000 is required to establish an endowed fund while V- Club donors may also make gifts to existing endowed funds. Endowed athletic gifts may not be used toward priority seating obligations; however, V- Club donors may receive priority points credit for gifts to athletic endowed funds.
