Endowment Gifts and Funds
An endowed fund creates a permanent legacy at Hood Theological Seminary. Endowed funds will ensure the future solvency of the Seminary through the Restricted Endowment Fund, endowed scholarships, endowed faculty chairs and unrestricted endowment funds for capital projects. The Restricted Endowment Fund is a growing permanent fund that will one day provide another income stream for the Seminary. The funds for endowed chairs and scholarships are also placed in the restricted endowments of the Seminary and will provide lasting resources for quality professorships and future Hood students. You too may start building an endowment. The minimum to start an endowed fund is $25,000.
