MIU General Endowment Fund

Why an endowment?

Every private college and university in America relies on an endowment as a permanent bedrock that supports their critical operations—and provides precious fuel for expansion.

Most important, an endowment helps ensure MIU’s long-term viability by providing crucial economic stability in a downturn.


An endowment fulfills this critical need. With the donor’s and trustees’ permission, the University can borrow temporarily against its Endowment to survive the coronavirus pandemic—as well as any future catastrophe.

A Golden Opportunity

With exciting new academic programs, students from 88 countries this year, new partnerships in other countries, and a campus being transformed through the generosity of our donors, the stage is set for MIU to transition from dependence on its human endowment to the security of a traditional cash/asset endowment — the kind of endowment that sustains the majority of colleges and universities in America.

As we prepare to celebrate our golden anniversary in 2021, we have a golden opportunity to create a $50,000,000 million endowment for MIU by June 30, 2021 — a springboard to long-term financial stability.

Please join us in this vital next step to help secure MIU’s next fifty years and beyond. If you cannot give now, please plan ahead and this will be your legacy. Please go to our Planned Giving webpage to learn how easy is to secure your future gift to MIU.
