Give to GC: Endowments

Since 1838, Greensboro College has benefitted from the foresight of generous donors who have understood that permanent endowment funds are an important investment in the continuing success of the College.

Endowments are permanent funds: the College’s investment portfolio. The corpus of these funds is never spent; however, the earnings provide crucial annual resources.

Earnings from Greensboro College’s endowment help fund scholarships, academic and extracurricular programs; faculty salaries and professional development; preserving our beautiful campus and more.

The following is a list of Greensboro College’s permanent endowment funds.
