Named Endowments

An endowment is invested sum of money, which accumulates interest yearly. The interest on the principal is spent each year on the stated purpose, with the principal remaining intact. The OTS fellowship program, education program, and the three field stations each provide an opportunity for supporting an existing endowment or establishing a new named endowment. Due to the nature of an endowment, there is a minimum gift of $10,000 required for named endowments.
