Update on Gift and Endowment Assessment Fees

Effective July 1, 2017, the gift assessment fee on non-endowed gifts increased from 5% to 7% in response to an increasing demand for additional resources across fundraising units on campus. The guidelines established in 2010 as to the types of gifts assessed and/or exempted from the one-time gift assessment fee will remain intact. Similarly, the 2010 guidelines also remain unchanged as it pertains to which endowed funds are assessed. 

Learn more about the gift fee change.
