*A donor may establish a Named Endowment Fund, for example in memory of a loved one, with the earnings designated for either a restricted or unrestricted purpose. The minimum gift to establish a named endowment is $100,000. Donors will have the option to start a new Named Endowment Fund with a minimum gift of $25,000 and a written pledge of such that the entire pledge of $100,000 is fulfilled within four years of receipt of the first $25,000 gift. If the total pledge is not fulfilled within the four-year specified period, the Named Endowment Fund will be dissolved and the corpus and residual earnings directed to the general purpose Inn Endowment Fund. Unless specified in the donor gift instrument, the spending policy for named endowment will follow the Endowment Spending Policy. The fund will become permanent and the name recognized in the Donor Hall.
