110: Stewarding Endowment Donors

Recorded On: 10/01/2019


Making an endowed gift is one of the best ways for a donor to have a lasting impact on an institution they care about. For the donor, it’s often a lifelong investment that doesn’t simply end after they sign the pledge agreement. Institutions, similarly, should approach their stewardship as a long-term and meaningful relationship—communicating with endowment donors regularly, engaging them in personal and thoughtful ways, listening to their feedback, and demonstrating the impact and return of their investment.
