College endowments have paid a critical role in the financial health of such institutions. These are funds, which are used to fund various operations within the college. The funds work in a way that the capital amount cannot be touched, but any interest derived from investing the fund can be utilized for the financial health of the institution.

Most endowment funds go into funding endowed professorships or endowed scholarships. An endowed professorship is any professorship within the college that is paid for using the interest amount gained from investing principle amount. The scholarships are also those paid for by the interest derived from these funds.
