Every gift to the MBU Empowers Campaign, regardless of its size, cements Mary Baldwin’s legacy of empowering students and helps launch lives of purpose for decades to come.
If our campus home, our MBU community, and our shared experience form the coils of the spring that launches our students, the Baldwin Fund supplies the tension that powers the spring. Your campaign gift to the Baldwin Fund enables our leadership to respond to a dynamic and changing campus in real time, providing resources for recruiting and retaining promising faculty members, reimbursing the cost of an internship, and ensuring that our students and our university continue to prosper in times of unforeseen challenges. Your gift to this campaign priority will have the greatest, most immediate impact.
In the months to come, these causes will be critical to continuing the upward trajectory of not only our students, but our university itself. Gifts in support of these MBU Empowers initiatives will ensure that Mary Baldwin continues to nurture and unleash greatness in deserving young women and men.
Endowments are forever. That’s what makes them so powerful. Endowments are unending funding streams that guarantee timeless support for what’s most important to you, the donor. Each year, 5% of the endowment goes directly to priorities designated by donors. That conservative withdrawal means the endowment will never disappear — which means it will continue feeding the university for generations to come. Endowments enable the university to look to the future with confidence that it will always have resources to discover and explore, to share knowledge, and to serve communities and families. Because of that, the value of an endowment is far more than the initial gift. The funds it generates are endless.
