Endowment

Blair Scholars Program
Minimum Gift: $1 Million
Donors of gifts of $1 million or larger, designated for scholarship support, may choose to establish a Scholars Program in their name or in a name designated by the donor. The establishment of a named scholars program allows multiple students to be named recipients of scholarship aid, which is provided through the generosity of the donor’s gift. Students, who are chosen as recipients of the named donor’s scholars program, shall thereafter be designated as named scholars, and they will carry this designation throughout their time at Blair as long as they remain qualified and deserving recipients.

Blair Endowed Scholarship
Minimum Gift: $100,000
Donors of gifts of $100,000 or larger, designated for scholarship support, will be recognized with a scholarship in their name or in a name designated by the donor. Previous donors have chosen to honor parents, spouses, or children with named scholarships. Each year, recipients of named scholarships write to the donor to report on their Blair experience. During the course of the recently completed Ever Always Campaign, 12 new named scholarships were established.

Endowed Teaching Chair
Minimum Gift: $1,000,000
Named teaching chairs recognize and honor the extraordinary contributions of senior faculty members who have a minimum of ten years’ career teaching experience. Recipients will be known as the holder of the named chair in all Blair communications, in addition to the tradition of receiving a chair and framed citation. During the course of the recently completed Ever Always Campaign, two new endowed teaching chairs were established.

Endowed Teaching Fellowship
Minimum Gift: $500,000
Named teaching fellowships provide funds that nurture, recognize, and retain the most promising young instructors, ensuring a consistently high level of excellence among the Blair faculty.

Endowed Faculty Development Fund
Minimum Gift: $100,000
A gift of $100,000 or larger will establish and endow a named faculty development fund, the income from which supports the classroom teaching, academic study, and professional development of the faculty. During the course of the Ever Always Campaign, one new teaching development fund was established.

Endowed Department/Program Fund
Minimum Gift: $50,000
A gift of $50,000 or larger will establish a named department or program fund, the income from which will support that academic department or extracurricular area.

Donors wishing to support scholarship aid or faculty enrichment may also make gifts of any amount restricted for these purposes. For more details regarding endowed gifts, please contact Blair’s Advancement Office.
