Supporting Programs that Matter to You
Your unrestricted gift enables Reynolds to fund programs and services of the highest priority. From new programs to the latest technologies to emergency assistance funds for students, unrestricted gifts broadly support our students and college programs.
With a restricted gift, you may choose to support one of our campaign initiatives or a specific program or project that matters to you.
Your unrestricted or restricted gift may be made to the Annual Fund or as a Major Gift. The Annual Fund can support a number of areas including student scholarships, library acquisitions, equipment and special projects. Major Gifts are usually larger-sized gifts of cash or other assets, often with installments paid across as many as five years and can be made for a number of purposes.
Honoring People Who Matter
A gift made to Reynolds may honor a family member, friend, or someone who has made a difference in your life.
Gifts to J. Sargeant Reynolds' endowment provide the college’s capital, the financial foundation on which its future depends. The college’s endowment grows through prudent investment to meet current and future needs, and the annual payout the endowment generates is used to support institutional goals and priorities.
Donors may elect to designate their gift to building the college's endowment or they may established a personal endowment fund for a specific purpose*. Donors who create personal endowments often do so to honor or commemorate a friend, family member, or favorite professor. These personal endowment funds support academic programs, faculty chairs, or other programs of interest to the donor.
Corporations and organizations may create an endowment to solidify the excellence and persistence of a program of study that relates to their business or charitable interests.
An example of such a partnership is the Ukrop’s Center for Culinary Education located at the Downtown Campus. Established through a $500,000 gift from Ukrop’s Supermarkets, the Center trains Ukrop’s associates in food preparation and sanitation.
Whatever the purpose, supporting the college's endowment gives you the satisfaction of knowing that your gift will benefit students and the Richmond community for many generations.
