While Earlham appreciates every gift it receives each year, Leadership Gifts play an indispensible role in ensuring the financial well-being of the College. While comprising only 13% of Earlham’s total donor base, leadership givers each year provide approximately 60% of the total amount of charitable support the College receives.

Beginning this year, Earlham has instituted seven Leadership Giving societies and two societies that recognize consistent giving to the College. Learn more about these societies.

A leadership gift can establish an endowment that the College holds in perpetuity. Learn more about endowing a fund.

An endowed gift is an investment in the future strength and success of Earlham — a gift that the College holds in perpetuity. The goal is to ensure that the principal maintains its value over time. Thus, a donor who creates an endowed gift today can be confident that it will grow and continue to support Earlham in the years to come.

Endowed gifts allow friends to:

  • Give generously while uniquely expressing causes or priorities that matter most
  • Ensure financial security for future generations of Earlhamites

Earlham gladly accepts gifts-in-kind that are appropriate to its mission but also maintains the right to decline any gift that does not fit with its mission or would be too costly to maintain.

The College also requires a transfer of ownership letter for all gifts-in-kind and a valid independent appraisal (at the donor’s expense) for gifts valued at $5,000 or greater.

In the case of gifts to the Permanent Art Collection, gifts of art will be accepted only if the curator has reviewed the proposed donation prior to acceptance (this can be done through photographs, correspondence or visit to the prospective donor). All objects must be accompanied by the following documentation: appraisal; correspondence; catalogue entry or other publication; provenance information (such as chain of ownership; purchase receipts); and a letter from the donor).
