The Class of 1974 established the department’s initial fund, The Shroyer Fund. Since that time, through the extraordinary generosity of alumni, faculty, parents and friends, the funds listed below have been established and a number of them are endowed. Support for these lasting legacies demonstrates a commitment to ensuring the continued success of our programs via scholarships, lectureships, instrument and library acquisitions, student research stipends and much more. Endowed funds can be created by gifting resources to the University in honor or memory of an individual or named after the founding donor, organization, foundation or corporation; the gift is invested, with similar funds, to generate income which may then be spent by the department to fulfill the donor’s intent. Departmental benefactors may donate to existing funds or receive information about creating a new endowed fund at http://campaign.bradley.edu/online/.
