Bentley's Endowment

Imagine a gift that never stops giving.

Once made, your gift will continue to provide support in perpetuity to the purpose you designate, and will be invested for long-term growth — for example, a scholarship that provides an invaluable Bentley education to student after student, generation after generation. Your endowment gift is an investment that provides a priceless return.


What is our endowment’s value?

The Bentley endowment was valued at $242 million as of June 30, 2016. Read the fiscal year 2016 endowment report.


What is the purpose of the endowment?

The primary purpose of the endowment is to provide a permanent and sustainable source of operating support to university programs and to provide financial assistance to qualified students.


How are endowed funds invested?

The Bentley University endowment contains hundreds of individual funds with various purposes and restrictions that are commingled in an investment pool and tracked with unit accounting similar to a mutual fund. Expenditures from Bentley’s endowed funds are applied to important functions such as need-based grants, scholarships, faculty professorships, library acquisitions, student-related programs, and operational support.
