Endowment Gifts Endowment gifts make a significant impact because they offer financial stability and ensure long-term funding to support and maintain AIChE priorities and programs. A bequest or gift to the Endowment Fund is money that is invested on a permanent basis and not spent directly. Based on earnings and growth of the Fund, a conservative percentage of the fund is withdrawn each year to support programs so the fund will last in perpetuity. Donors can also specify spending instructions for designated funds.
