Endowment Investment Policy
The University has adopted an investment policy that is intended to provide a predictable stream of funding to programs from its endowment while seeking to maintain the purchasing power of the endowment assets. The University's endowment consists of cash, securities, and other investments. The use of the assets may be with or without donor restriction. The fund may receive donor‐restricted gifts and bequest realizations to provide a permanent endowment, which is to provide a permanent source of income. The principal of a permanent endowment must be maintained permanently and is classified as net assets with donor restriction.
For questions or further information, please contact the Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations in University Advancement at (215) 572‐2781.
If one of your clients arranges an estate gift for the benefit of Arcadia, we would very much appreciate knowing about the gift, both so we can express our sincere gratitude and – as noted above – so we can make sure we will be able to fulfill the donor’s wishes.
Of course, we respect the fact that in some cases donors prefer to remain anonymous. If you are willing to serve as an intermediary, a client of yours can share information about his or her plans without divulging his or her identity.
