Support the Endowment at
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Establishing an endowment at Embry-Riddle is one of the most powerful and lasting investments you can make to ensure that the university remains the world leader in aviation and aerospace education for generations to come.

When you contribute to an endowment, your gift is placed in an investment account managed by the university. A portion of the interest earned annually (typically between 4 and 6 percent of the rolling three-year average of the fund balance) is used to support your designated purpose, but the principal is never spent.

Because the principal of an endowment is never spent, it is truly "a promise without end," providing resources for students, faculty, programs and facilities in perpetuity.

Embry-Riddle is an excellent steward of your contributions. Compared to other universities with similar sized endowments ($101-$500 Million), our investment strategy consistently outperformed our peers for the period ending June 30, 2017, earning a higher rate of return at every benchmark (1-, 3-, 5- and 10-year).
