Endowed Funds


Establishing an endowment is an act of great generosity and vision. Donors who decide to create an endowment do so because they understand the importance of supporting the Claire Trevor School of the Arts not only during their lifetime, but for generations to come. These visionary individuals, families, and organizations build an extraordinary resource. Many donors choose to establish an endowed fund in order to honor a loved one, or to memorialize an important figure in their life, ensuring that their name and generosity will forever be a guiding force in our School’s success.

Endowed funds are invested in perpetuity. A portion of the invested return is distributed annually to Claire Trevor School of the Arts priorities and designated programs, while the remaining portion of the return is reinvested back into the principal for market growth. This allows for an endowment to provide both immediate funding and long-term financial security for the School, ensuring that the fund will continue to benefit future generations of scholars, faculty, and creative leaders.

To learn more about creating an endowed fund for the Claire Trevor School of the Arts please contact Sarah Strozza, Director of Development at (949) 824-0629 or sstrozza@uci.edu.
