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.
