Named Funds

Establish a Named Fund to make a lasting difference. You will provide continuing support far into the future to your designated cause.

 A Named Fund provides donors with the opportunity to create a personal fund in honor or memory of a loved one and, at the same time, to make a more permanent gift to Université Protestante au Congo or Université Evangélique en Afrique. What better way to pay tribute to loved ones while funding a cause near and dear to your heart?

Named Funds are designed to provide continuing scholarships to students at the university designated or to support other projects of Education Congo. With a minimum donation of $25,000, the Named Fund will be invested in order to keep the amount of support paid annually and the value of the Named Fund as stable as possible over the long run. Once the Fund has been invested for one full fiscal year, it will begin to provide an annual payment to the designated cause.

You may make a donation to any existing Named Fund to establish a new Named Fund.
