All contributions made to Endowed Projects (those beginning with “3”) are added to the corpus, or principal, of the endowment. The endowed principal may never be spent. Income earned on the principal is used to fund projects or programs. The Foundation’s endowed projects are jointly administered by department chairs or area directors and the Foundation. Disbursements from endowment earnings are made only when requested by the appropriate department chair or area director. Endowed projects are typically used to fund scholarships or professorships.
All contributions to Restricted Projects (those beginning with “0”) may be used to fund activities and programs. Restricted projects have been established for most academic and administrative areas on campus. Disbursements from restricted projects must be initiated by the various program directors or department chairs and approved by the appropriate academic dean or vice president. A minimum balance of $1,000 is required to establish a new project. Unrestricted contributions made to the Greater University Fund are disbursed across campus through a budgetary process which is approved and monitored by the University Vice Presidents and the Georgia Southern University Foundation Board of Directors.
