Build a solid foundation for the LBJ School with an endowment gift
Approximately 30 percent of the LBJ School’s annual operating expenses are met through income from endowments established by generous donors. Endowment gifts provide permanent support to the LBJ School because the gift principal is invested, never spent. Endowments can be set up for a wide variety of purposes and offer naming opportunities to donors or their honorees.
