Strengthening our ability to plan for the future with confidence

A growing endowment is essential for sustaining the impact of new buildings and programs into the future.

Moving Bluffton into the future...

A $5 million endowment initiative, funded primarily through deferred gift commitments, will strengthen the university’s endowment to provide ongoing support for students, faculty, academic programs and the university’s fiscal well-being.

Bluffton’s endowment currently includes more than 250 endowed student scholarship funds, two endowed faculty chairs, several funds for faculty research and student discovery, and funds established to provide operating support for buildings and the overall educational mission and program.

Endowment for scholarship is strengthened by people with intellectual pursuits, such as Karl V. Schultz, who is remembered through the Bluffton University Schultz Discovery Funds.
