Creating an Endowed Fund

Since the founding of Acadia Divinity College in 1968, alumni, individuals and churches have established endowed funds which provide ongoing financial support to the College and our students. Donations made to these funds are added permanently to the endowment and generate annual income used by the College to support its ministry operations.

Endowments entrusted to ADC are ethically invested and professionally managed. Acadia Divinity College’s Board of Trustees oversees the funds and their management to ensure their long-term sustainability for the institution. Through the Lord’s provision, our supporters have entrusted nearly $20 Million in endowments.

Naming an Endowment

Naming an endowment is an excellent way to carry on a family tradition, to honour a family member or friend or to encourage generosity of future generations. Directing the fund to support specific ministry priorities also allows your passion to live on through Acadia Divinity College, encouraging and supporting future generations in their ministry.

We suggest a minimum of $25,000 to establish a named fund. Many donors will establish a named fund as an “Increasing Endowment” with a smaller lead gift. Over time the fund will be grown through additional gifts and accumulated interest from the investment. When the fund reaches the target amount it will become an Endowed Fund and will begin to produce income for the intended purpose.
